Fiber Frenzy Report

At the May meeting of the Fiber Frenzy group, we were treated to an informative talk about threads and needles presented by Francyne.

She has written out a lot of this information on her  blog, so you can check it out here.

The main point of her talk was that there were hundreds of different threads, each with it’s own set of properties and uses.  The bottom line is that you have to just try each and see which works best for your particular project!!

After the talk, we each shared our Scrap Challenges.

Anita had set the challenge and she presented these two beauties.  The right one is made from the scraps left from the scraps of the left one!!!

Finally, Nancy made this cute piece with a “Put a Bird on it” theme…._5132485 Nancy also brought her “going green” challenge for the previous month.  She managed to find a way to use old cassette tape to great effect……
