Also at our November Meeting...........

Linda brought her friend Sue to the meeting who showed us a wonderful little jacket she had made in felt with Dorset feather stitch trim, she also brought a little sampler......I feel another workshop coming on!

Southern Belles Christmas project 2007

The Christmas project this year was inspired by Linda's demonstration of the possibility of printing on fabric using an ordinary ink jet printer. This enables us to print photos, logos or anything you want onto fabric that can then be used to create a unique piece of work. In this case a Southern Belles teddy bear.

Our November Meeting

The November meeting of the Southern Belles was held on Sunday. Sue lead the Christmas workshop to make a unique very limited edition teddy bear. It was a fun, chatty session as usual despite the weather being so awful 19 members turned up.

The Southern Belles website is temporarily under reconstruction. We are in the process of updating everything but we should be back soon with our plans for 2008 and a good round up of 2007.

Next Meeting

Our next meeting is at wellow Hall on Sunday 18th Nov. There will be a surprise Christmas workshop. Bring a basic sewing kit and lets have some fun.

Introducing Rosie - Leigh

We thought you might like to have a look at the doll created especially for the Brighton Doll Festival by Hildegard Gunzel. She is a limited edition of 150 and some lucky owners were able to have Hildegard personally sign them. She is a very pretty doll made out of resin and dressed very simply in pink and white.
