This weekend I have participated in a class where we learned Meshwork. It is a braid technique where we braided different panels that can be used for different purposes. The teacher was Brita Rundgren, a very clever and patient woman. At first the technique seemed very simple but as the day went forward it was not as easy as it seemed at first. However, the first panel we made was very simple but that was only a warm up. the next was a bit harder and the third one was difficult. So now I have to do many new attempts trying to really understand how to do it and get it in my fingers.

It happened much on Friday. First I had to register. Next to find the classroom where my class was to be held. I was so lucky to participate Marti Michell’s class where she tought the Double Wedding Ring. We used templates she has designed herself. She was an inspiring teacher and tought us some trics to make the ring smooth together.
When the class was finished I had to visit the shop area. However, it was so crowded as it use to be but I found a few fabrics which I bought. Here they are:
In the evening it was time for the usual evening meal with a very nice performance by Marti Michell where she talked about her works and showed many of them live. She told us she doesn’t like to .do slide shows. Instead she brought a three suitcases with lovely quilts from the USA. I took many photographs and will show some of them here:
