Beginning Punchneedle, June 2, 10:30—12:30 pm, $20
Come learn this great fiber art! It’s a great way to use up threads and you can make pictures for framing, ornaments for hanging, pillows for throwing or just about anything you can imagine.
All supplies provided; you may purchase needles following class. Class is $20; RSVP 1 week prior to class time.
Cross Stitch Basics, June 6, 10:30—12:30 pm, $20
Let Jennie hook you up with the basics of cross stitch. You will learn how to read a chart and transfer that pattern onto your fabric. Great way to learn some new tips and tricks. For example—did you know there is an arrow on the end of a skein of DMC that shows you what direction to pull? Already know how to stitch but want to teach a friend? This is a perfect class for the buddy system!
Pinterest Win/Fail Make-It-Take-It (Trash-It?), June 11, 6-9 pm, $25
We’ve seen ’em – the cute craft ideas on facebook, Pinterest, and in magazines – and thought “I can do that!” But can we really? This is a first in a series of Pinterest Win/Fail Make-It Take-it (Trash-It?) classes where we are going to try some of these ideas. The first project? Painting with buttons! If you have buttons you want to use, bring them – but all class materials will be supplied. Bring your creativity!
