Richard Box Workshop.

A visit to Merseyside

In August, Mary and I spent an enjoyable day with members of the Merseyside branch for a workshop with Richard Box.

We started off in a large group with scissors and glue, a piece of hessian, and scraps of fabric.

I had the best seat in the house.


 After that we went on to machine embroidery. Mary and I had a few teething problems with the embroidery feet



But finally ,success!


After that we began hand stitching

 Some of the glued bits weren't easy to get the needle through.


Here is a completed version of a similar piece.


At the end of the afternoon we had a show and tell, and a chance to buy kits and D.V.Ds
