Patchwork Pottery – Corner Pocket Tutorial

Corner Pocket Tutorial from Laurraine Yuyama:-

‘Using corner pockets is my favourite method of hanging a mini quilt or wall-hanging besides having loops and a rod as part of the finished design. It is super easy, very functional and uses minimal hanging hardware on the wall. It has come to my attention lately that not everyone knows this little hanging trick so today I am happy to share it with all of you.’

Oregon College of Art and Craft Library – what it says on the tin – a great mix of art and craft.  OK I know that ‘things to do in Portland this weekend’ isn’t exactly local craft, but you must admit it’s interesting!
