Grace Frame Class January 17th 2012

This time last year we were all struggling to get to work - this year we've had a few frosts (minus 7 at home this morning - quite fresh) but nothing like the chaos of last year.   At least it means that our classes aren't disrupted by people either unable to get to the class or getting stuck trying to go home.  So another full day class of Grace customers learning how to load a quilt on the frame, a bit of needle theory and threads with hands on before lunch to load the quilt.  After lunch we focused on the quilting using Pam Clarke's 8-Line and Straight Line Stencils.
