Class number 2

Last week we had a four lovely days holding our 2nd full phase class in Japanese embroidery at the Crofters Hotel in Garstang near Preston. A great time was had by all. This time three more advanced stitching friends joined us which was really useful for the students working on their phase 1. Beginners and advanced students were able to compare notes and experiences and were able to support and encourage each other. Big thanks to Carol-Anne, Sue, and Ruth who very happily gave of their time and experiences. Big thanks as well to Denise, our tutor, who supports us all with endless patience (and who brings along lots of goodies to tempt us with!)
Our little group of Japanese embroiderers in the NW is growing slowly but surely. We had one new student starting her phase 1 piece, Bouquet from the Heart of Japan, while the rest were continuing work on their first phase, we also had two brand new students who joined us for the taster class on Saturday and Sunday.

We've confirmed class dates with the hotel for April and October next year - details over on the Gallery. See you there?
