Monica Selway - Manipulative Techniques
We had an opening evening on the 22 October with Mrs Monica Selway who gave us and interesting talk on American Smocking and did a presentation on her work.
On the day of the workshop Monica taught us how to do the wave, honeycomb and flower pattern. Sheila Dove had a break through moment when she created a new design and adapted the sewing technique for the left hand members of the group.
Helen was in her element as Monica created her patterns on graph paper and Helen's Engineering background was called in to place with straight lines and precision sewer. As a more organic sewer I am still trying to catch up but all in all we had an enjoyable day.
