Silk Museum workshop . . .

. . . making a 'Langley Bag'. So-called because the pattern came from silk works at a place called Langley. Margaret Waring, our current chair of the Macc EG branch, had prepared packs of everything needed to make the bag, including pieces of silk from the Heritage Centre shop, and ably led us through the process, in a nice light room at the Centre. The first bag pic is one of a number of bags brought out of the collection by the curator to give us some inspiration. This pattern is an interesting shape! Sorry the second one, made by Margaret, is sideways, I can't find a way to turn it round! There will be more pics of finished bags, or B(ags) I(n) P(rogress)s eventually.
