Show and Tell

Pat Correz has stitched The Prospector's Surprise by Libby Sturdy. The details are really intricate and clever!

Nancy Cucci was with us tonight to present part two of her mini-embellishment project, which covered finishing tips and techniques. Her instructions and demonstrations showed us how easy it will be to complete this pretty scissors fob. Thank you, Nancy, for a great design and a clever finishing method!
