Earlier in the year I'd been invited by Selvedge to join them in running a sewing workshop at the Big Chill Festival. Last weekend Team Selvedge headed out to Eastnor Castle to set up shop, teaching participants how to make a little fabric bird that would then be hung in a nearby tree for the duration of the festival.
The event was a huge success, with hundreds of birders keen to take part. It was lovely to see the dedication, care and love that went into making these little birds...and the smiles on so many peoples faces as they finished theirs up and hung them in the tree.
Thank you to any of you who might have come along and taken part, and to my friends who offered themselves up to help and of course to the lovely Selvedge ladies who asked me to be part of it.
