I am Scandinavian, I adore Fair Isle knitting, I love colour and crochet and all these elements come together for me in Tapestry Crochet. I am currently preparing a workshop in Tapestry Crochet and had this notion that the yarn from Cushendale Woollen Mills would be ideal for this purpose. The yarn is hard wearing and the colours are simply second to none.
Yesterday I finished this little handy bag covered in diamond shapes. I just need to find the right button. The design I made reminds me of a large embroidered cushion my grandmother had. Funny how my granny seems to crop up all the time.
My next item will be in pure cotton which can give a good hard-wearing fabric too. I’m thinking summer, I’m thinking sunshine, I’m thinking handy little essentials bag.
The Tapestry workshop will be in The Yarn Room in Ashford, Co Wicklow this coming Sunday June 13th from 10.30 to 4.00, the price is €65 for the day where you will make your own bag. Materials and handouts are included in the price. For booking contact email@example.com.
