Visiting KYM

I while back I was invited to do a combined Make a Boob workshop and Playing with yarn class at a KYM meeting last Thursday. KYM is a women’s group at the Methodist Church here in Stavanger. This was my first test run for the Make a Boob workshops, and I’m happy to say it all went smoothly. I had been thinking about how to set it all up so the Bling and Boobs and thread (sponsored by Gütermann) were all neatly sorted in containers. The big question was how each participant would pick and stash their embellishments while working and I went with a simple and cheap solution: plastic tea spoons to pick beads and small items from the containers and paper soup bowls to keep everything in place. Worked like a charm, and they can be used over and over again.

This was such a lovely group of women; welcoming, fun and enthusiastic. 9 fuzzy flower quilts were made and a few boobs finished; I got to talk to lots of interesting ladies - and I was invited to stay for supper. A perfect evening!

Thank you so much for inviting me and letting me be a part of your group!
