Peeled Oranges

We had a great day on Saturday with our Orange Peel class – full tables, rapt attention and a fine mist of spray starch hanging over the proceedings!  Everyone had come fully prepared for both machine and hand stitching and we were really quite surprised when, almost at the same moment, all the machines were put away amid declarations of “I really like hand sewing”……….   After the demo everyone tried out different strategies for preparing the Orange Peel shape and we’re happy to report that no fingers were burned as starching and pressing got under way.  We’re looking forward to seeing a few finished pieces at the next class in November!
