Manitoulin Community Circle Project Continues in 2011

This is an open community event that takes place every Thursday in the United Church Hall in Little Current. Four 90-inch square panels are under construction, made mostly from re-purposed table linens with hand stitch. It is hoped that these panels will eventually hang in permanent installation in churches on Manitoulin. The project is under the leadership of Manitoulin textile artist Judy Martin and the sponsorship of Little Current United Church.

In January 2011, the techniques are: machine string and foundation piecing for the second panel, hand embroidered french knots on wool squares for the fourth panel and the use of “texture magic” with hand stitch for the third panel. Please feel welcome to come and learn, practice or help teach others these techniques. The first panel was hand quilted on the frame last summer and fall. There is currently no quilt on the frame.

Also, please feel welcome to bring your own handwork if preferred.
Fellowship and advice are free.

The hours of the circle project have changed for the winter. The new hours are every Thursday, 9 am until 4 pm, United Church Hall, Robinson Street, Little Current.
