The workshop today was lead by Cecile G with more than 20 participants. Cecile's Stack 'n Whack was enjoyed by all and stay tuned for the results in months to come!grouping. There was an explanation by Margie C regarding next month's workshop.
We had a good size Show and Tell by members with lots of enthusiasm.
Next month's workshop
Margie C will be teaching the Bargello runner next Guild meeting which is May 7th NOT may 14th! All that you need for this runner is 2 strips that are 2 1/2 inches of 10 different fabrics. Have a look at the gradation in Margie's. She used greens and blues but of course, you can use any combination of colours.
