Looks like good fun was had by all. I'm trying to reorganise my workroom to gain more work space. Not easy with so much stock to store and I can't throw anything away!! Everything comes in handy at sometime!!

You lucky thing!! I love doing Devoré, but you rarely get the chance to do it on this scale outside of college.
The finished scarves look amazing.
