Work continues on the smocked baby bonnets. Barbara brought two of her own designs to show the group.
|Barbara has added beads to the green smocking on the left for a heavier, sparklier effect. This technique works particularly well on clothes intended for adults.|
There is an important social aspect to the meetings.
|Dominic Auty, Isabelle, Katherine, Francesca and Jacob Stevens enjoy a chat over a cup of tea|
For smaller children and those not interested in joining in the sewing, we are lucky to have books and crafts supplied by Marion Joyce.
|Margarita Grimer, Dorothea Shaw and Teresa Grimer take a break from their sewing|
