    For ages now, we’ve thought we should do some guerilla bagging in a more distant town – Penzance, for example.
    And……
    A long time ago we had an invitation from Ros, a previous customer of ours, to do some bagging in an art gallery she’s involved with in Penzance.

    So we’ve finally put it all together and agreed a date – we’re off to the Redwing Gallery in Penzance to do a make and take drop in workshop on Saturday 30th August.

    Looking forward to it already! 😀

    We have eaten there and nearly bought a Barns-Graham print there. Lovely place to bag! I’m very envious!

    They have a vegetarian/ vegan cafe in the gallery, serves cuban coffee & highly regarded cakes. I wonder if I’d be asked to leave if I take out a ham sandwich I made earlier? 😉

    Ooooo well done! That sounds like it will make an interesting bagging experience. I have a feeling, though, eating hour ham sandwich in the cafe would be to them like someone swapping a morsbag for a plastic bag would seem to you! So don’t do it! Looking forward to one of your superb reports in due course – with photos of course.

    Yes that will be the one Grumpy and I went to Beattie!Its funny how vegetarianism/veganism is still looked upon as strange! I’m with Krisaby on this one! Its about respect 🙂

    You are certainly bagging about in Cornwall this Summer. Redwing Gallery looks lovely, and looks as if it is similar to a new enterprise we have in Ivybridge, without the cafe (Look up Creative Connections in Ivybridge) I havent done a Morsbag workshop there, but I have been running learn to sew classes, and was involved in this

    Spot my Singer in use

    Point taken, Krisaby and Offcuts. 😀

    Great story and lovely photo, Ivybags. Did you take it, as you’re not in it? Are they the bags hanging up at the back – they’re lovely & gorgeous fabrics.

    Well done, getting so many made in a day 😀

    beattie – I was there for the first hour, but I had to go to work at midday, so I left my Singer there – the lady using it was delighted – she has arthritis, and was worried about using a modern machine she didnt know And yes, they are all hanging at the back – dont they look lovely. Apparently some woman who have to have a double mastectomy may have 4 drains, so tha bags are perfect, and look nice too

    Spent the evening ironing kits in case we have a massive influx of eager stitchers next Saturday. It’s not my fave job – reminded my why we just “fold and sew” when it’s only us sewing! A bit much to ask of a newbie though, hence the chore.

    Looking forward to the report on how it goes on Saturday. It has the makings of a terrific event.
    I sometimes fold and sew and sometimes get an ironing phase – it depends on time and mood!
    Talking about time and mood – I have timed the wait between click and happening on this website. The average wait is ten seconds. I think the acceptable time is recognised as four seconds. Sometimes it is more than ten seconds. Yawn!
