23 September: Stamp and Stitch
(No sewing machines needed) In this workshop we will use some beautiful handmade stamps to create a unique cloth which we will then embellish with creative hand embroidery. We will cover a range of basic stitches and you will end the day with a sampler of stitches to refer to as well as your own stamped and stitched lavender bag. In all workshops, additional tools and materials will be available to purchase in order to continue with your new crafty skills set.

7 October: Creative Applique
In this workshop we will make our own totally unique fabric using recycled materials. Annie will teach you how to applique a host of fabrics to produce a beautiful one-of-a-kind piece. We will then turn these unique creations into a purse or makeup bag.

We will cover how to apply fabrics and designs to a base and embellish it with freehand machine embroidery. You will learn how to transform your piece into a small lantern or pot...These will make great Christmas gifts!
