Anshu and Sara have taught themselves how to quilt from Youtube and are enjoying creating quilts and wallhangings. There are unlimited resources on the internet so take some time time to explore. There are art classes, crochet, quilting….anything you have an interest in
Members of the art circle are still painting and Nazreen has sent in a lovely floral watercolour. The artists are also practising sketching noses
Karen from the Quilter’s Circle has been busy with fabric and in addition to quilts she has been making soft toys, a quilted book cover and a christmas table runner.
