Mel Beach was her swan song as she steps down from a few years of volunteering and takes a well deserved break.
Mel was well organized and had obviously worked hard to develop her handouts.
The workshop was organized so that the group would get together to learn information then go to the machines to practice. There was a lot of back and forth, which was great because it encouraged everyone to take breaks.
Mel covered taking breaks and caring for your body in addition to using tape to mark, tips and tricks for pivoting, decorative stitches and much more.
