Lots of excitement at Tassie

Yes we had lots of laughs and excitement and it was so good to catch up with some really lovely friends. Tassie is a really lovely place and very pretty. I think I could live there one day.

Our Stitching In Tassie day was a fabulous day with 21 of us all joining in on this laughter and there was lots of new techniques to learn. We all had a blast!

There was 6 of us who showed 15 ladies these new techniques and shared lots of laughs.

This is us 6 tutors.
