       Description:
    For those interested in creating a fast, easy to sew project, I am now working in wool. Wool is a lovely medium as it is soft, comes in gorgeous colors and visual textures, and does not require any needle turning. The stitches can be extremely simple to more complex and the project can be given dimension with the addition of silk ribbon. I have many new patterns in small sizes to introduce wool, most of which finish to 6” x 8” or 6” x 10” hangings. These projects are a wonderful way to test the waters and see if this is a medium you would like to work in. Kits are provided for these workshops.

    There will be an $18 charge for the wool kits in the supply list.

Using Karen’s “Summer Star” pattern, minimize the challenge with foundation piecing, learn to assemble the star without screaming, and adorn background areas with dazzling motifs in channel and cutwork appliqué.
