I am also very shy and entered the room all alone. Instantly I felt at home. Everyone was so warm and welcoming. Thanks to Lynne of Cranberry Crafts for hosting this workshop and for letting me know about it.
Our goodie bags were like finding treasure. The ooh's and ahh's around the room were witness to the wonderful items we received.
These are little samples and a pattern and material to make a draw string pouch.
These are patterns from Brenda Ryan and I purchased some gorgeous hand dyed stranded cotton made by Mini -Blessings, Jo-Ann Johnson. Brenda was there to help us out and demonstrate her iron on transfers. Brenda also taught me a new stitch. Thanks so much Brenda. Her embroidery is incredibly beautiful.
These three patterns are from Kerry Gillespie a very quiet gentle lady. I didn't have time to chat with her unfortunately but she made her way round the tables to help out. I can't wait to make her dolls.
These patterns were given to us by Christine Book. Amazing. I am a shy person but when Christine is around she makes conversation so easy. So bubbly and cheerful, full of joy. Thank you Christine for a fabulous day. I learnt so much from you.
Well there you have it, the longest and most exciting post I have done. I am going to another one of these workshops. I met so many wonderful and very talented ladies. Thank you to all of you for a wonderful day.
