Make Do and Mend - a success!

Despite a few ladies not making it last night we still had a great attendance, two ladies became members and we met a new first time visitor.
Everybody managed to make an apron, some with extra pockets and different trims, it was lovely to see the end results. We shared sewing machines, everybody helped each other and there was a really warm feeling of friendship for the whole evening.
This is the apron Jane made as an example, the patterned fabric is a large pocket,
 the rose is stitched right through to stop the pocket gaping.
We were all very busy
but there was still time to chat over a cup of tea and a cake

We were all very happy with our finished aprons. some are for gardening, some for crafts and others for gifts
