Each year we hold full day workshops at Dence Park Community Centre, 26 Stanley Road, Epping NSW from 10am to 4pm.
Over the years we have learnt a variety of different smocking, heirloom and construction techniques to help us through the process of making a beautiful hand smocked item.
In 2016 we had Lyn Weeks and Judith Adams as our teachers.
Lyn’s class was Sleeve and Hem finishes and Judith’s class was a circular pincushion or tuffet made from english netting smocked and beaded, photos are below.
In 2017 we will have 4 workshops:
Lynne Holyoake – heirloom sewing, Carollyn Pearce – crewel embroidered tape measure cover (see photo below), Janet Luce – whitework & our own Julie Trickett – fabric manipulation by machine
