Machine Embroidery Retreat - Day 3

What a fantastic three days our students have had at our MACHINE EMBROIDERY RETREAT!  The weather was so very kind to us and wonderful new friendships arose. Even the 4 hubbies had a great time too. 
So many beaming faces holding up some of their achievements.  They all said they learnt so much and now feel so much more confident with their machine embroidery and so inspired to go on to other challenging projects with no hesitations.  What a fun time they have ahead of them for the next 12 months, as many have already promised to return for next year's Retreat!
Day 3 flew past so quickly that I'm sorry I didn't have the opportunity to take many photos of the day's progression of sewing, but I did take some finished project photos. It will give you some idea of what the girls achieved, but there were so many more. 
Gael has a selection to show you.......... 
Wanda had too many to fit into one photo!
We all loved Cheryl's comical ditty on her mesh bag..........
Kay made a wonderful folder cover to contain all her notes, appropriately decorated with many new techniques she learnt.
Next year's date has now been set, so I hope the above may encourage you to consider joining us!
