WOOL APPLIQUE YULETIDE WORKSHOP~The Comforts Of Home Pillow
Vermont Harvest Folk Art by Doreen Frost
OH, November!! :) The anticipation, of our first snowfall, coupled with the Thanksgiving Holiday makes this my favorite month. By now, most of you are aware, I am a very big SNOW LOVER. Perhaps Mother Nature shall graze us with a bit of the white stuff to make our cozy day of stitching all the more perfect. We shall spend the day sipping cocoa, chatting, laughing and stitching, by a warm wood fire.
THE COMFORTS OF HOME ~ WOOL APPLIQUE' PILLOW
~ SATURDAY, NOVEMBER 20th, 2021
10:00 a.m to 4:00 p.m
FRIENDS ~ I am very pleased to offer a Wool Applique workshop this year! A lovely pillow perfect for tucking into a dough trencher or, your favorite chair. It is done in my favorite colors of rich red, creamy ivory, subtle green, and soft brown and stuffed with creamy wool roving. The design features a little brown house, leaping reindeer, hearts, and mistletoe vines.
*Beginners to advanced, all are welcome*
The class will cover the basics of wool appliqué (tracing onto freezer paper, cutting out, and ironing, pinning in place), and then, we shall STITCH. The class will, of course, cover all the stitches in this particular project. Stuffing and finishing directions will also be covered. A complete pattern will be included in the kit, so you may finish the pillow, at home if need be (or if you would like to make more).
Your class kit will include the following;
*Valdani Perle Cotton threads
*Gorgeous hand-dyed wool
*Creamy Wool roving (for stuffing the pillow)
**YOU WILL NEED TO BRING YOUR FAVORITE SCISSORS TO CLASS**
