April: Needle felted Handbag by Dianne P. Do you like one-of-a-kind handbags? You can make this handbag your own! This is the first of a three part program. I hope you can join us as we start the project making a needle felted handbag. We are entering spring/summer so the design will be flowers and fruit. The bag can be made from felted wool (100% wool felted sweater found at the Goodwill or by the yard), knitted and felted or felt that is sold by the yard (better grade than craft felt). Supply list will be sent later.
May: Join Kathleen C. to learn some Basic Bead Embroidery. This is part two of the handbag program. Kathleen will teach some bead embroidery basics to use to embellish your handbag. If you missed the handbag program you can always bring fabric and a hoop to learn these beading stitches. A supply list will be sent out with the program reminder.
