Square Foot Challenge

SEFAA's Square Foot Show for 2014 is now on display. It is a must-see.

Several entries were created by CWC members and friends.

Lorraine McCartney won the CWC ribbon for best use of couture techniques. Her work (left) is titled Reflections of a Marriage.

Ask her about this piece. Such a cool technique.

And, of course, her stitches are perfectly yummy.

What a fabulous presentation we had at our April meeting. My inspiration well has been filled to brimming by three very special, and very different artisans - Martina, Nancy and Sue.

Part trunk show, part gallery showing, part tutorial. Many thanks to you three!
