The boxes are all packed and ready, lists have been written and ticked off and I hope (fingers crossed) that everything is ready for the Fete tomorrow. It is the annual Parish Council Summer Fete where the community gets together and celebrates what goes on in our local area. As the JETS (Junior Embroiderers' & Textiles Students) Group meet in the Parish Offices, we were invited to take part.
Here is glimpse of what the boxes contain:
1. Fabric and Thread
Fabric packs with an assortment of different fabrics, embroidery floss and fancy yarn.
Spools of thread in lots of colours.
Colour packs of different fabric scraps, many of which are hand dyed.
Great for making colour collages.
2. Children's Brooches
I wrote about making these from felt scraps in a previous blog.
3. Key rings
More felt scraps fashioned into something useful!
4. Sewing Accessories
Cottage needlecases that were surplus from the student's activity.
I cheated and used the sewing machine to do the final construction.
Fabric covered containers for your bits and pieces and sewing jars with all the essentials inside and a handy pin cushion on top.
All these items will be for sale to raise funds for our group.
Last but not least...........
5. Stitching Activity
The most important box of all
with all the things needed for everyone to have a go at stitching.
Now I must not forget to pack the scissors............
