Fiona Jackson workshop

Last Tuesday I had the opportunity to do a workshop with Fiona Jackson. Oh what a lovely day we had and a great teacher. I chose to have a kit and everything was in the kit. Right down to the threads freezer paper and pen and pencil. All I had to do was take the sewing machine and general sewing items and turn up. How easy is that?

Here are a few of Fiona's art pieces. I was blown away with her work.






I decided to do the Strelitzia above in the class. I still have a lot of machine quilting to do on the piece. I need more practice to do so many straight lines.lol

I have just written a class for this felted knitting bag for Learningfa. A yahoo group I teach on based in Canada. It was a lot of fun and nice to get my felting machine out and use again.

Machine Felting




I have finely had time to do a bit of relaxing in the studio
I made a small felted piece on the felting machine. It is such a long time since I have done any of this work and enjoyed it. I also made a few sample for a class I have to put together for Learingfa.

Top left a piece compleatly covered with wools  and the other two smal samples.
