Creator Club!

We are very lucky to have a group of artistic Secondary School students who come along to our Creator Club.
This week it was my turn to show them the joys of machine embroidery.
But...first things first...the refreshments had to be sorted out before our VIPs arrived.
Oh! No!
A biscuit related accident!
After chatting about my stitchings they were off!
I was amazed how quickly our students worked and just how high the standard of the work was.
Time for tiffin!
Just look at those little fingers!

Michael's frog!

Sam's happy dance!
Whirring machines...not long left now!

It's thirsty work!
Not many biccies left now!

Creative mess.

An iguana!
Stunning continuous line stitching.
Look at this use of colour and texture!
What a beautiful sea gull...
Look at this patchwork combo!
Can you see the cheeky octopus?
We had such a good time and everyone worked so hard.
Well done chucks!

  3. That is brilliant. I love seeing people learning a new skill and creating something amazing. We aren't given enough time to just play once we are no longer children. Very thought provoking. Thanks for sharing.

  4. So glad you enjoyed the post. It was a really inspiring evening.
    Teens are given such a bad press and they were a joy. X
