The End of an Era

Today was the last session of my City & Guilds Certificate in Machine Embroidery Class. The work has been completed and the ladies have passed with flying colours. The following is a small sample of the work they have produced over the past two years.


Wall Hangings

Cushions


Pictures


Containers and vessels



Accessories, more pictures and boxes



An accessories case, a gauntlet and a fire screen



bags and bracelets



I'm sure you will agree that the range, diversity and quality of the work they have produced is amazing. They have been a brilliant class, there have been plenty of laughs and considerable amounts of cake over the two years so I would like to say a huge thank you to Gill, Sheila, Pam. Linda W, Linda C-H, Angela, Janet and Jann. Pam was so pleased at having "graduated" she dressed up for the occasion. (She works in a charity shop so is always coming up with goodies!)


And although it may be the end of an era, it is not the end as they are sticking together as an exhibiting group and have kindly asked me to tutor them next year (I thought they would have had enough of me by now!!!) ... so watch this space
