This weeks classes

Wednesday, the ladies were working on their own various projects. Fernanda was busy with her quilt and the instructions were causing problems (sizing problems), that after some help from Paula she was back on track.
And Madalena got on with finishing her Dresden Plate on her Elna sewing machine which she has had for a few years. It is so dinky!
And a mother and daughter joined us for the first time and started on their Rail Fence. They chose the same fabric but one did in pink/chocolate and the other blue/chocolate, placemats.
And later when Madalena had finished her pillow, she decided to go on and make small wallets using this fabric and also Manuela joined in as well.
We were joined in the afternoon by Maria Helena, who wanted to have a go a making the Dresden Plate, which she was going to finish at home with handsewing.
And on Saturday, unfortunately I had no time to take any pictures, as it was non-stop helping the ladies with their individual projects they had decided to do, from bags to journal covers and helping a lady cut some wonky strips!
Hopefully this Wednesday I will have some pictures to share with you! Check the calendar at Arco Iris Ao Metro as to what we are doing on Wednesday 9th February and if you are interest come along, but please don't forget to confirm with the shop that you will be coming to class.
