Make Like A Mad Fiber Artist For This Stunning but Subtle Purse or Wallhanging

Saturday, 8/15/20
12 pm - 6 pm EDT

The price of the workshop includes the cost of the required $27.50 class kit.

You can do no wrong in this fun class and make no mistakes as your work becomes a fantasy of field flowers. You will create the rectangular cell phone pouch in class and receive the pattern for the larger purse. Choose either the black background Angelina sparkle kit or the gray background kit with less or no sparkle at all. You will still receive Angelina sparkle in both kits but you can decide later if you want to use it or not.

Learn old school machine couching of fiber and ribbon for truly graceful vines done easily. Learn how to cut, iron and apply silk velvet and foil invisibly. We will shape and machine sew Renaissance-like trim into flowers in minutes. Using the correct weight of stabilizers will yield a beautiful textile that can be used in quilts, purses or garments. The possibilities are endless with these easy machine embellishment techniques. I'm debuting two new flowers in this Zoom class.
