SATURDAY Oct. 27th: 9 AM to 12 PM and 1 PM to 4 PM

Ease into gentle free-form topstitched curves in this technique and design workshop. We will make abstract flowers that twist round and round and pairs of Layered Leaves embellished with yarn. Then experiment with different combinations to see which design layouts appeal best to you for making your choice of a wallhanging, table runner, table topper, a bag or the beginnings of a quilt top.
