What a wonderful session….
Firstly we revisited (and tried out) Tony Bennetts Seamless / Reversible Seam. A few mistakes by yours truly but we got the idea sorted. Impressive…
Ann showed us a pattern for a tiny tiny bootee for newborns – seriously cute.
Then we had an amazing session with the dreaded Garter Bar. We checked out Sandees Video and Diana Sullivans video and had a go. I was honestly gobsmacked at how easy and magic it is. I think several of us went away wondering why we had shunned the garter bar for so many years. I went home and played on my Bulky – photo attached shows the result and my Bulky garter Bar.
A great time and a huge turnout – Thanks as always to Margaret.
We had Eleanor Goldfinch from NSW up to show us a few Passap tips and tricks – how to make some lovely rugs (blankets and covers) – how the locks work and what the E6000 can do for us. We had a great time with 15 attendees, even a new member and a fabulous demonstration. Thanks Eleanor and the organisers – appreciated!!
