    Salt Line Studio pod will be making morsbags in the sun (fingers crossed) at an outdoor music festival in Congleton, Cheshire.

    Going Up The Country Indiepop Weekend
    Saturday June 13th 2015
    The Church House Inn
    Buxton Rd, CW12 2 Congleton

    We’ll be sewing al fresco with the Singer handcranks, but I think we’ll leave the actual singing to the actual singers 🙂

    Its a charity event, there is a charge for tickets to the festival, proceeds to MACMILLAN CANCER SUPPORT but the morsbags are free as always

    That looks like great fun Tracy! I hope you have enough help to catch some of the bands playing that day. Handcraks always get lots of attention and bring out the reminiscences. 😀 Any chance of some photos please?

    At first I wondered if you would be asking for suggestions of music to make morsbags by!

    Number one suggestion – The Sewing Machine Song, from the musical film, The Perils of Pauline https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=999ph8iRT4o

    2) Canvas Bags by Tim Minchin

    Haha thanks Beattie for the clips – how have I not seen that Tim Minchin video before? Very funny – but I must admit towards the end I was wondering how many morsbags I could make from that billowy white shirt (nothing is safe when you’re a morsbagger!).

    I shall try to get some pics too.

    That sounds like it will be fun and trend setting – making morsbags to music while eating cake!

    Hope you had a great time at the ball Sazzie.

    The Indie pop festival goers were a very lovely bunch. The hand crank Singers were a real hit and lots of lovely morsbags were made.

    There a couple of issues with morsbagging at music festivals though.
    i) You have to get really good at explaining how to make a morsbag just using (polite) gestures or get a very hoarse voice.
    ii) You have to stop yourself from hand cranking in time with the music – its fine for a ballad but can get a bit speedy on a faster number

    It was a lovely day, and a good day for whales too 🙂

    It sounds wonderful Tracey! I laughed when you listed the “issues” with music festival bagging, particularly the “cranking in time” observation! 😀

    It’s lovely to get the handcranks out again – and they create a lot of interest and nostalgia.

    Sorry some of the photos aren’t there….

    That’s brilliant Tracey! I just love the idea of the music persuading you to hand crank in time with it. I can see that would be compulsive.
    It sounds like a wonderful event.

    Glad it was fun Tracey! We are supplying morsbags for 4 outdoor festivals this summer.:-)

    Thanks for the update Tracey, I love the pictures of the hand cranks, I’m afraid I’d be guilty of sewing in time to the music

    “The Hand Crank Singers”, one of they northern close harmony groups I s’pose.
