Third Saturday of the month, January through October | $75 the first class; $20 thereafter | beginner-level with some embroidery experience
Exploring the art of “crazy” embroidery as you create a one-of-a-kind bag to tote a treasured textile and/or fiber project. Please join master embroiderer Deb McManus as we meet in January to deconstruct the process and learn the construction of the bag; and then begin the process of creating.
In each class, you will learn new stitches and experiment with threads and embellishments. You can choose either the Crazy Little Bag or Victorias Bag. Deborah will have some wool to choose from, but and feel free to purchase any embellishments or wool you may want to use instead. Deborah will also provide needles and threads.
