Pour Encourager Les Autres

Jean has not only finished her piece from Pat Barrett's workshop but has also framed it using Pat's method.

If anyone has a photograph of a finished piece (from any workshop) please lets share it on the blog.

Pat Barrett Workshop

What a great day we had at the April workshop with Pat Barrett, she demonstrated the darn stitch she uses to create her beautiful work and had brought with her some inspiring pieces of work, books and souvenirs from her travels for us to get inspiration from and also a wonderful stash of threads, ribbons and yarns for us to use.  This is a really simple stitch and through using varying thicknesses of threads wonderful textured pieces were produced, all very different and original.
