It is an exhausting, exhilirating experience being at the Creativ Needlework Festival! Can't figure out if I am more tired than happy or vice versa. The students created the impossible in only 3 days, a gown that fit perfectly, a coat edged in faux fur and embroidered, a hat with embroidery and jewels, fingerless gloves and even a ring! Faculty advisors are not allowed to touch anything during the competition so this morning when I picked up the coat I was shocked how heavy it is with the volume of fabric and the fur trim, the girls not only tested their sewing skills but got a work out as well! I am so incredibly proud of Amy and Denise there are no words to accurately describe it. Against all odds they finished the work with some help from Dora and Joanne. Thank you to all who participated and/or attended.
Next year we will win no question!
Thank you to the ladies who attended my Marfy class for next year we can maybe do a complete garment over a period of days. Please send me your comments/suggestions and I will take them into consideration
