Name Badges.

It was Deirdre's turn to take the felt in and this month we were making name badges, however here is Deirdre modelling the infinity scarf she made at Fiona's workshop.
The show and tell was good with Gail and Jayne showing their wall hanging from the Jeanette Sendler workshop.

Jayne with her completed wall hanging, which she had backed to give added support.
Deirdre had prepared sample name badges all using prefelts, which had then been needlefelted to add a design or a name, also some beads were used for decoration. 
Here are some of the name badges at the end of the session, some finished and some to be finished. The idea is we will wear them every month so as we can learn all names of new and existing participants! Sarah very kindly provided some Wensleydale and Boarder Leicester curls It was a very relaxed morning with Deirdre encouraging everyone to develop their designs. 

My thanks go to Ann Mc Cullough for sending me the photos and some text!
