We had such an enjoyable day viewing, touching, discussing and seeing samples, after which we settled to a time of stitch and chat. Included were lutradur, evolon, grilon thread, tyvek, various soluble fabrics and Gossamer web…just to name about a third of what people brought along.
What was really excellent was seeing people’s samples and finished works using these alternative fibres, and brainstorming further possibilities. We discussed various glues and the effects of heat application via irons, heat guns and soldering irons.
Images show some of the ideas and samples we saw, a few of members’ books relevant to the day, plus what might be called “the basic glue kit”.
