Certified quilt instructor Ginger Mangie brings her embroidery and applique talents to our shop. "Hands" is a wool applique project that encourages personalizing the finished design to be something unique to you. Students will trace their own hands (or the hands someone special) and apply them to the ground fabric, then plan their color pallet. Embroidery with threads from your stash (Ginger used #5 & #8 perle cottons) follows the first session with a final class on finishing the border.
Fee for first session is $20.00 which includes the black wool for the hands, some metallic threads and the pattern. The wool for the background can be brought from home or purchased in the shop. (Assorted colors of locally hand-dyed wool will be available.) Check your stash for threads or add to the colors you have with materials from the shop.
Other Monday night sessions will be held on July 11 and August 1. Saturday morning sessions will meet on July 16 and July 23. Optional kits will be available for the second and third sessions.
Limited to 5 students
