Just wanted to show off the new Rubbish Revamped banner that made its debut at the Didsbury Arts Festival this weekend. Of course it is fully made from rubbish, including old ties, plastic bag pieces (eg spot the frozen pea bag) and old bits of material. I’m only just learning how to use my new sewing machine, received last Christmas. It’s an Impression 2000, in case that means anything to anyone, and has a rather peculiar bobin casing. Here it is, after sweat and nearly tears too, and help from the lovely husband (the one responsible for the purchase…) and the patient and talented embroiderer Liz Cooksey (if she had a website there’d be a link…).
Most popular today was button bracelet making. The new sock monkey kits went down well too. More to come!
