Sashiko in Shaftesbury - North Dorset Quilters

I visited North Dorset Quilters on my way to Jersey last week, doing the "Travels with a Bag Lady" talk on Wednesday night and the "Sashiko Kinchaku Bag" workshop on Thursday. We had a bit of a surprise when we turned up at the hall they had booked for the workshop - Thursday was the day of the EU elections and it had been taken over as a polling station. The polling clerk was initially pleased to see us, thinking we had turned out to vote!

Kate, the group's chairperson, stepped in and we went to her ultra modern house, which turned out to be the ideal place for the workshop. I completely forgot to take any photos of the completed work in the afternoon, as we were running slightly late due to the change of venue and of course some people had to leave at 4p.m. Thanks to Kate for sending the photos below.

As the day was warm and sunny, the quilters could take their stitching out in the afternoon.

Here is a link to Kate's wonderful house - a great space for workshops.

Oh my word - I would need two weeks to clean and tidy up before I could host a workshop at my house!!
