Checking in

Just quickly.
Here are some workshops and workshop dates for your diary.

Saturday 25 May
Let's Play Felt All Day.  Bring any project that you are working on that is made from felt, or bring your felt scraps and start something new.  I have some small projects that I am working on, and am happy to share ideas with you. 
Do you remember the felt covered tape measure from last year? 

And the bottle cap pin cushions from the year before?
There are so many inexpensive and useful little gifts that one can make with felt.  It's so handy to have a few small hand made items ready-to-give when you need a present in a hurry.
A while ago I made a pin cushion with felt pansies.  I'm revisiting that idea, and experimenting with other flower shapes too.
During the afternoon session I will be demonstrating needle felting, for those who are thinking of attempting the advanced needle felting workshop in June.

Morning session from 9am till 12h30, and afternoon session from 13h30 till 16h30.  R 55 per session.  If you would like to join us, please reserve your spot.

Saturday 1 June and Saturday 6 July
All day bear making workshop.  Previously fully booked, two spaces have just become available for 1 June (update 20/5, fully booked), and 6 July is filling up fast.  This is an ideal workshop day for beginner teddy bear makers.  You will receive a prepared kit, and be able to finish your bear by the end of the day. 
If you are an advanced bear maker, this is a great opportunity to spend a whole day working on your unfinished projects, with me at hand to help when you get stuck.

The puppies are well, and growing fast.  We are slowly unpacking the winter gear, but the really cold weather hasn't struck yet.  Right now I am enjoying sewing in the studio's bay window under a gentle sun and long afternoon walks with all six the dogs.
