Embellishment techniques with Sandy

Welcombe Spinners enjoys a wide range of skills, and not just in spinning! Absolute beginners are always welcome, and everyone is always glad to share their skills and new techniques with fellow members. In June our own lovely Sandy, a truly talented textile artist in her own right, showed us how to improve our embellishment skills including needle felting, beads, and embroidery. You can get started with needle felting with just a couple of fairly cheap tools, and it gives you a great excuse to keep hold of all those pieces of fibre, yarn, and fabric that are too small for anything else! Here are a few photos of some of the beautiful things produced at Welcombe Spinners at Sandy’s embellishment day.
