Evelyn Baxter’s School on Japanese Patchwork
13 -14th May
Liz Hunter led a very informative and interesting class on E.B.S.J.P.
There was a very high attendance for this class and Liz made everyone feel at ease as she took them through the various stages. Cutting out templates, material, tacking, ironing into shape and sewing to form the ‘tiles’ which is the basis for creating so many items. Liz brought along some fine examples of how to develop the ‘initial tile’ into many ideas.
There were many levels of sewing skills in the class but everyone enjoyed learning new techniques and handy tips.
Time passed too quickly as everyone was engrossed in making their Japanes Patchwork bags. Everyone agreed that it was a very enjhoyable class and that was due to Liz’s friendly teaching skills. All hoped there would be another class in the future. Annie Mackinnon presented Liz with a gift of thanks at the end of the two day class.
