Pictures from Embellishment Challenge (Oct 2015 Meeting)

At our October meeting on October 13, 2015, members showed off embellishments they did to various garments and other things sewn. I took some pictures for the first time at our meetings, and, unfortunately, it kind of showed. I was adjusting on the fly as people presented animatedly in low light, then snapped some quick close-ups at break, also adjusting on the fly. The results weren’t great, and I apologize. However, I know what works now from the shots that turned out well. The next set should be much better but my apologies for messing up this set that had some great work by our members. Well done, everyone!
