Stitched Brooches with Tina Francis

We had a great branch meeting this week, making our own tapestry needlework brooches with Tina Francis, who brought detailed instructions, canvas, yarns and needles to enable us to stitch our own brooches.

Tina showed us some of her work, and explained that as we were using multiple colours, they would tone well to make beautiful unique items, something that was borne out when we saw the finished article.

We also enjoyed the opportunity to chat, and there was a lively buzz in the air.

Our new set of daylight lamps came in handy too.
