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!

Looks like it was a great time! I was singing in choir rehearsal, then concert, then sewing while watching March Madness, but I’ll get my priorities straight next time! 🙂

From Faye
Well we started with now and ended with sleet, but I had a wonderful time, learned a lot, accomplished a lot and especially got recharged with my time away from home.
Thank you everybody who contributed to my success and I would be remiss if I didn’t mention the wine or treats brought in.
I have attached some photos I took for you all to enjoy and gasp in horror at our antics!

And Now, For Some Completely Appropriate Sewing Humour

Inspired by a few of Faye M’s Facebook post, I went to look for more. Also a reminder of the gallery feature available with our blog.

If you’re interested in that Keep Calm fabric as I am, Amazon US sells it, but I’m not sure if that seller delivers in Canada.
