Caterpillar Stitch Demonstration

Wednesday we were treated to the next to the last demonstration for the Booked 8 show. BAR member Ann Vollum showed the Caterpillar Stitch. This technique is such an attention grabber and good to have in your repertoire of skills.

Ann shows variations of what can be done with
this stitch. A large demo card makes it easy to
see how to progress.

Here she is adding beads.

Knotless Netting Demonstration

Last Wednesday, Elisa Caporale did a demonstration of knotless netting. It was a great opportunity to learn an unusual technique that I'm sure members will begin to incorporate into their books! Elisa has a background in, among other things, fiber and basketry.

Here's a closeup of the netting.

And some examples of objects captured in the netting.

Above,Elisa gives Delores some tips and, below, Benita gets help.
