Videos available from 1st September 2017:
On Friday September 1st, we meet textile artist Mary Gamester. In an interview recorded at the West Country Quilt and Textile Show last year, she tells Faye Hatcher about her inspiration, her love of transfer paints and shows us some of her latest work. We also have a fun Facebook live feature that was also from the 2016 show, where our reporter Faye met the team from the Royal School of Needlework and tried her hand at embroidery with some interesting results…
On Friday 8th September we return to our lovely new knitting series and a super film from expert knitter, Rosee Woodland, as she shares her 5 top hints and tips for choosing your yarn – a very useful guide for both beginners or more advanced knitters who just want to check their choices.
Plus, we join quilter Carolyn Forster for part two of her series on Hand Piecing patchwork which makes it so very portable. In this section Carolyn shows us how to speed up things up by cutting our shapes with a rotary cutter, instead of by hand, and reminds us to add a seam allowance.
