You can see several of our group entries on the stage during the final showcase back in May.

July Monthly Meeting

Val demonstrated to members this month on how to use prefelts and by adding stitches, to make a 3D form. The pieces were then felted down to the stitched shape (hollow forms or ridges) resulting in a 3D effect, a surface design of mixed forms.
