Padgate Sunday Stampers Collective

Padgate Sunday Stampers is a fairly new group which meets monthly and, whilst most people are papercrafters and stampers, the group offers everyone the opportunity to do any craft they wish. It is a very friendly atmosphere and, not only do we have lots of fun, we share information and skills. There were more than 20 at the last session, some missing from the photo below, and many travelled quite a distance to be there.
Here's a selection of projects from the day........
Quite a few revisited and brushed up the resist techniques from Gill's last class for Victoria Stampers with some great results.
There was stamping and excellent techniques for colouring with Copics
Even a Christmas card or two was made!
A Tri Fold card....
Some background experiments
Box making
Sewing by hand
Sewing by machine
Beadwork
Producing beautiful bracelets
Lovely crocheted flowers
Here's the parts of the pull out card I made, before it was constructed.
Here's Jayne's ATG gun personalised with bling and BTW it is decorated both sides.
So much produced, great company and a great day was had by all and as a bonus we all enjoyed Jayne's yummy catering..... corned beef hash, leek and potato soup and fresh bread rolls along with continuous tea, coffee and bickies.

i love it when people get together and make disparate things... collectives are far more creatively productive than factories or individuals...
