Over the weekend of 12th and 13th October our guest speaker, Dawn Cameron-Dick , gave us an entertaining and educational insight into the world of wadding. We were all encouraged to ask more questions about the manufacturers of a material many may have taken for granted. Environmental issues as well as loft, bounce, durability were highlighted in a very amusing and insightful way.
Sunday 13th October and 16 ladies came to the Darby and Joan Hall sewing machines at the ready. Today we were to learn how to make a New York Beauty Block, using the technique of foundation piecing. Again a very entertaining and industrious day with everyone achieving at least two individual pieces.
