The Cape Embroiderer's Guild arranged for a group of volunteers to teach some basic embroidery skills such as threading a needle, starting and ending threads, spacing of stitches, straight stitch, buttonhole stitch and how to apply beads. A two hour workshop is not long to do all that but the girls loved it and they turned out some super work.
There are going to be some pretty feet around this summer. Well done girls!
Later.... These photos of the beautiful 'no-shoe shoes' were kindly sent in by Sue Kingma:
If anyone from the workshop has more photos of their completed sandals, do send them to me and I will add them to this blog post. My email address is lynette dot warner at gmail dot com, written in the usual format firstname.lastname@example.org
