Work and Fun at Summer School

Thank you to all summer School students for allowing me to use these photos of themselves and their work on my blog.

Distant Stitch Summer School 2010

This years Summer School involved nearly 30 Distant Stitch students in a superb workshop run by Ruth Issett, supported by Lizzy Lewis. We missed Bobby Britnell as planned co-tutor with Ruth and hope all is improving for you now Bobby. Sending you all our good wishes and our smiley faces below. We're crowded onto the main stairs in the Manor - hope you can identify all those at the back.

We all made 'ATCs' (Artists Trading Cards) to swap on the first evening. Finding your unknown swap partner by looking for a clue on that person created lots of hilarious questions and laughter. An excellent way of getting to know a lot of people at the beginning of the Summer School. (Thank you Hazel for your suggeston). So we each possess a little embroidered gem to treasure made by someone else.

One was inadvertantly left after borrowing them back for this 'group' photograph. So if anyone has missed the second one from the left on the bottom row, please let me know so I can send it on to them.
