Road Trip & News
On Sunday I was invited to go on a road trip with one of my new friends, Maureen. She took me to a fabric warehouse in Leicester, I know I don't need any more fabric but it was my first invite so I just had to go! It's a long drive from here... fortunately!
I bought a pair of scissors, 3 metres of 50/50 batting to try out and these 1/2 metres of batiks, the stripey fabric was on the bargain counter... £2 per metre, I like using stripes for more interesting bindings.
I'm a member of the club now (it's £5 to join) so I guess I will be returning some day soon.
My other news is that I found a great room to rent so that I can start classes. I negotiated with a fabric shop to get 10% discount for my students and I met three ladies who can't wait to join my new group.
All I need now is to decide when to start, make and display some posters and we're off!
Wish me luck........
