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.’

Sue Stallard’s recent UFO Beading Day was so popular, she has decided to make it a monthly meet.
Times are from 10am until 9.30pm held at St Georges Leighton Buzzard. Come and go as you like for the cost of £5 including tea, coffee and biscuits.
There will be no workshop but Sue will be on hand to help with any problems you might have.
Email Sue for more information – firstname.lastname@example.org
(I think in this context UFO stands for UnFinished Objects, but I’m sure someone will correct me if I’m wrong!!)
