excited to have Maggie Bonanomi in this part of Ohio for the first time, June 23-25, 2016.
created a great appliqué piece for us to do in the 2 day workshop
called Summer in my Garden. A complete kit will be provide, you will
only need to bring your hand sewing supplies. Along with the project
Maggie will be sharing her short cuts and easy ways to cut out appliqué
without a pattern.
It was a whirlwind weekend in Claverack, NY. with our friends Betsy, Eric(Heaven), Erica, Gracie, Brian and Rick. Starting with a tour of home base to Heavens to Betsy, can anyone say WOOL and more wool. Truly heaven to a rug hooker. Got a great education on how much work goes into preparing those wonderful swatch flyers we all get, not to mention the wool we order. And all the rolls...are this year's new wools we will be seeing in the future.
Then on to the next day's class of needle felting with hooking. Lots of excited ladies anxious to use what was taught in their next projects including wool appliqué. A good day! Our last day was spent vending at Betsy's hook in, what fun! 92 ladies enjoying a day of sharing, hooking, eating good food all with lots of smiles. I love seeing what everyone is working on and completed, amazing work!! Enjoy the pics!
