Fun with zips!

Well we have just completed our first month and it has been a great success. This is fantastic when you hear the news and the world seems to be going to hell in a handcart!

Last Saturday was our first class and we kicked off with "Playing with Zips" with the lovely Kathleen Dague. We  learnt how to deal with a centred zip, a concealed zip and a lapped zip! And we even know what to do with 2 more of those strange feet that came with our sewing machines - result! Kathleen provided us with practice zips and calico, as well as detailed written instructions so everyone is pretty sure that they will be able to recreate these zips on their own!

Once everyone had a go with these zips they used 2 fat quarters to put together an adorable cosmetic bag. Here are just some of them

Kathleen was a very patient teacher and everyone produced a very professional looking bag. The ladies on the course had a great time and the Dundee cake went down a storm!

Tomorrow is the first Saturday meeting of our new quilting group the Granary Quilters, and we are very excited to see who comes! The cake for tomorrow is Lemon Drizzle and Jam Filled Biscuits - all expertly made for us by the bakerlicious Anita! Thanks Anita - we can feel our trousers getting tighter by the minute but it is sooo worth it!

Best Wishes
