Eastern Promise Workshop with Anna Williams

This weekend we had Anna Williams come and teach us her Eastern Promise class.
It was 2 days of great instruction and fun techniques.
There were eight ladies in the class and I am sure I speak for all
of them when I say it was a very good weekend and we all produced some
lovely work.  I look forward to seeing them all completed.
