Stories from the Sewing Box Day School with Ali Ferguson

This day school took place on 16th March, thanks to Meg Woomble for telling  us about it.
Preparing for  Ali Ferguson's Scrappy Sampler Dayschool provided me with hours of nostalgia! Looking through Granny's button box and finding buttons from my old dresses, her workbox with bits of lace, a 'mending kit for stockings' and other such memories, set the scene for a most enjoyable day. Ali herself, provided lots of wonderful materials - vintage fabrics, paper patterns, brown parcel paper , tape- and even the use of an old typewriter! Time spent  hand stitching  the pieces onto our blanket  gave us  a relaxing afternoon, culminating in a display of beautiful blankets with memories and nostalgia in abundance!
