More about the workshop with the Guelph Guild

In between workshops we had some free time to do some sight seeing and visited some of the Mennonite communities around the area near Cambridge. There wasn’t nearly enough time to see enough of their distinctive way of life. Niagara Falls was another great place to see on a cold crisp day. So much more to see and enjoy…… we’ll have to go back!

Everyone worked to their own theme with the emphasis on innovation, using hand stitching techniques to create a constructed fabric.

All the work had an individual ‘feel’ to it and these are just a few examples of the work in progress. There was a great variety of colour, materials and decoration, so I felt it was a very successful workshop. It’s always wonderful to see everyone following their own path with a little help from the tutor! Hopefully everyone went home full of ideas and good intentions to carry on stitching.
