A Group of Cheerful Sewing Ladies

Aren't we a happy bunch?
This is the GNO SAGA group in New Orleans.  I was teaching a class for them over the weekend.

We were happy because they did such an excellent job stitching the class project!

Finished the tucks and Fancy Yoke band.  


Now, to stitch the Fancy Band to the yoke piece.

She is weaving 4 strands of floss through the "entredeux" holes of the Swiss insertion.

This is my sample.
We are making Toddlers Summer Dress
The Tucked version.

Jane is the nice lady who I am staying with.  She has a fantastic button collection.  And amazing antique needlework tools.  And a really cool sewing room.   More on that in a future post!

Next time:  Day Two with GNO Smocking Arts Guild!
