Little Thread posted a topic in Introduce yourselfHello, I am a newbie here, I joined from the sewmag.co.uk website today, having bought my first issue of the magazine. I'm feeling inspired to try some sewing after watching The Great British Sewing Bee! I also like to dabble with Art Journaling, Scrapbooking (I love Rubber Stamping and Decoupage!), Drawing, and Embroidery. I would love to learn and try Blackwork Embroidery, Tapestry / Needlepoint, Zentangle, and any new Papercraft techniques! Looking forward to making some new likeminded friends on here for some shared inspiration, encouragement and techniques. Best Wishes,
I am setting up a new knitting group from November 2014. It will be situated in London, meet twice a week, once in Canary Wharf and once in Soho, and take place during the day at 11am. It will be on Tuesday's and Thursday's. I am looking for other like-minded individuals who are around during the day to join. Could you please post this information for me. And if you know anywhere else I might post it successfully, I would be very grateful. Thanks, Rebecca.
Frist day of the first meeting of a new Craft group at the Church today...only a handful ofpeople but we knitted and nattered and commented on various crafts.I took along some of my card making bits and pieces and it seemed to draw attention....one lady who came in, I have never met before, but she seemed quite taken with my (tea bag folding) and my folder showing types of card I have made in the past. She even took photos, so hope she inspires more people to come along...Must say I left after 2 hours(that was half way through) as was so exhausted...just the medication I am on, but enjoyed the morning and hopefully the interest will grow with more folk going along in the future...Had to think carefully about the bits to take for a few cards as obviously can't take everything, so concentrated on papers I had pre cut at home, double sided tape and some tea bag folding....plus a few brads and peel offs and voila, instant cards......another lady had worked over the years on a family tree on fine X sitch....absolutely a work of art and beautifully done.....so great to see what others are doing...yes a good group will come out of todays start I feel.....
I am working on a log cabin picture quilt of my parents house and garden and plan on doing quite a bit of embroidery on it - flowers, vegetables, plant pots, etc. However I am in a bit of a quandary - when should I do the embroidery, before or after quilting? As I see it I could machine quilt "stitch in the ditch", then do the embroidery, trying not to have the threads showing on the reverse, or I could do the embroidery before I quilt and work the quilting in hand around the embroidery, which I am tending towards more at the moment, although I do keep changing my mind! What are other members experiences of combining embroidery and quilting, do you quilt first and embroider after and if so, I'd love to know any pitfalls / suggestions you may have; or would you recommend embroider first and quilt later.... cheers Mazzy
