Feathergirls Happy Scrappy Workshop at Quilt It and Dotty

Our first workshop, last Saturday. Yes, we (fellow Feathergirl Hubertine (click) and I) were a bit nervous, but also excited. Excited to see how we would do, which new people we would meet, would they enjoy what we had come up with for them, what would the atmosphere be like…

As it turned out we had nothing to worry about. With the organization of the day in the capable hands of the ‘hostess with the mostest’ Dorry (click ), her beautiful shop next door on the premises (there were so many ladies who wanted to attend Dorry was kind enough to open up her home for the workshop) and a lovely, fun and energetic group of quilters ready to do some serious scrap busting,  it was a fun filled day.

We were happy to share our idea’s, patterns and stories, the ladies present were happy to share their enthusiasm and their stories.

An impression….

Sweet James welcoming us

Some ladies had very special sewing machines

The labels on this case!

Time for some action!

A yummy lunch a.o. home made quiche, home made soup, and traditional regional sausage buns

As it happens it was the Carnival/Mardi Gras weekend and one of the floats of the local Carnival organisation was kept and later on wheeled out of storage at Dorry’s farm

Alaaf, Dorry!

Other blogposts about this day can be found - of course - at fellow Feathergirl Hubertine’s blog (click) and at the blog of one of our ladies at the workshop, Anja (click), it was great meeting you Anja, can’t wait to see what you will make.

Thank you so much to all of you (Feathergirl Hubertine, Dorry and our lovely attendees) for making this such a memorable day!
