What a super time we all had; there was sewing for two days at the Lady Sew and Sew warehouse in Henley and then dinner at the Red Lion Hotel in Henley followed by the hilarious talk from Jennie Rayment.

The sewing schedule was, for me as a tutor, a little different in that I only had to prepare to teach for a one-day workshop – teaching half the delegates on day 1 and then the other half on day 2.  There was a little Magic 4 from me, and some Twiddling and Fiddling from Jennie and from the delegates point of view they got the benefit of both of us without having to move!!!

Sewing surrounded by fabrics added to the inspiration (and meant that anything that had been forgotten could be easily replaced) and Vanessa made sure that there was time for ‘shopping’ .

We took lots of photos (including some great ones of Jennie giving her evening talk – a few are below, but you can see all the pictures in our albums on Facebook, Pinterest or Instagram

A big ‘Thankyou’ to Vanessa and her team for making this first joint venture run so smoothly and I am looking forward to planning another – maybe I should check that with Vanessa though!!!
