Hi All,

A full wkshop for the Kantha Quilting wkshp and two on the waiting list, though some managed to get on with a couple of people withdrawing which would have made a total of 24 wanting to be there! Is this an indication of what everyone wants and needs!

It was a beautiful, relaxing and productive wkshop with lots of deliberation about choice of delicious coloured fabrics first, then how big,small, and what position and then what threads to use!. This was followed by stitchin...

Not to mention all the street art would be a crime, I have been bowled over by the ingenuity? of how we...
