We had 30 people join us at St Matthew's Hall in Exeter, even the rain didn't hold them back. The lovely Kerry Green from Very Kerry Berry tought us all English Paper Piecing with hexagons and diamonds. She even pre-cut a bag of fabric hexies for everyone there and bought a Sizzix Big Shot along for everyone to have a go with. I think they will be getting a sudden flurry of orders as everyone was very impressed and wanted one of their own!

Everyone kindly helped out with tea & coffee making duties and setting up/clearing up at the end so thank you very much to all my helpers. I'd also like to say a big thank you to Annie at The Village Haberdashery for sponsoring the whole event.
I have to admit I was too busy talking towards the end to take a pic of what everyone made so hopefully people will share their pics on Twitter and Facebook. The picture below is of the hexagaons Claire Corry made (pic from her Twitter)
Plus Rachel from House of Pinheiro just sent me a picture of her pretty hexies too (below).
Kath from Sew La La Fabrics set up a lovely stall of bargain price fabrics and habby, only £1 a FQ so as you can imagine they flew off the stand!
If any of you that came have blogged about it please do post the link below and I'll add it into the post. Hope you all enjoyed it. I'm making enquiries as to whether we can get the hall again in the autumn. So if you missed it this time keep an eye out for the details of the next event.
If you aren't near Exeter don't forget we have a London meet up next month and a Liverpool one in June. There are still tickets available for both but don't leave it too long as this one sold out. It's only £15 a ticket and that includes your materials and refreshments.
