and yesterday I was teaching machine embroidery to someone as young as 87 years old... which is fantastic because it just goes to show, age is no barrier when it comes to machine embroidery!
I spent Saturday in Suffolk with sixteen lovely ladies from the Stitch Skills Swap Shop, teaching a class called Shimmering Sheers.
Lots of sheer fabrics combined with plenty of sequins, beads, foils and sparkle and the ladies all went home with a little sparkly bag and several twinkling flowers.
You can see Jacky's results here and I'm sure there will be lots of pictures on the 4S blog very soon. And if you fancy a "Shimmering Sheers" day I will be teaching the same workshop at Art and Stitch on May 21st.
