Making Vintage Postcards with Janet Humphrey

Gill, who attended this workshop says:
We had a very enjoyable day with tutor Janet Humphrey, who arrived with goodies of lovely ribbons and hand-dyed lace and lots of inspiring samples.
After being shown how to get a unique vintage style postcard onto fabric using A4 labels and cut-out images, we set about choosing a postcard to embellish. Even though some members had selected the same postcard, each one soon became a beautiful individual piece.

We added lace, hand stitch and cut out extra flowers and butterflies ....

Janet was on hand throughout the day to teach us individually how to do new stitches such as creating a rose, stem stitch, French knots, etc and helped with ideas.
It was a lovely hand stitch, feminine, girlie day. Some members went on to buy extra postcards to continue with what was quite an addictive process of personalising them. We are looking forward to seeing them finished at our AGM day.
