The Ribbon Arch
This is the design by George Peters based on an original concept by Etienne Veyres and Alain Chevalier
ORIGINAL SUGGESTED COLOUR SCHEME.
Following more research and discussion there have been a few changes in construction detail including the addition of dacron reinforcing along top and bottom edges. These have been included in the instructions above. It has also been decided to keep the decoration to minimal designs such as those shown below. This is due to the concern about tension across more intricate designs.
A workshop will be run on 2/3 February 2013 where all the work will be done over two days at the usual location. We will require as many people as possible to be there to help with every thing from cutting out, drawing designs, sewing applique, sewing together, adding reinforcing, handle design, helping with lunch and probably most important keeping every one supplied with tea and coffee. The club will provide a basic lunch on both days.
