Bedford Workshop

Another day was arranged by Sue for a workshop in Bedford at a  church room. These days are always most enjoyable. Six of us had signed up to make a Carpet Bag with Penny being our teacher, while the rest of the group did their own thing.
I chose a fairly thick fabric but wish I had gone for upholstery fabric as I think it would have looked better, still there is always next time.  The closure is a large metal sprung frame, what fun we had trying to put the little bolts in to secure it, strangely no-one had a pair of pliers in their sewing kit!

It was a lovely day meeting up with the regulars that always attend.
