Just returned from Session 3 of my Masterclass course. Another good session where we looked at Rep and Shadow weave and actually designed our own pattern from a simple motif. That was really exciting and just need to do more now I am home.
Yesterday I took my friend Diane to Denman College for Tea and Textiles. This was looking at some of the textiles in the WI archives and included smocks and embroidery samplers. The work was very fine and was made up of teaching samples and competition entries. I was a bit disappointed to note that there were no weaving samples or any wool work! Afternoon tea included the smallest scones I have ever seen!
