We had a fun day on the weekend playing with our soldering irons and fabric- melting and fusing and experimenting with mark-making to try out lots of ‘What If?’ questions.

I especially liked the charred-looking lines produced on this cream fabric:
There were also some members sharing their recent finishes
Some more results from last month’s ‘Green’ challenge:
and Meryl’s Recycled challenge piece:
Lots of busy people!
