November Meeting: WOOL APPLIQUE
November 28, 2016, Beechwood Church Lodge, 6pm – 9pm
Learn from your fellow guild members the fun of working with wool. You will be provided with a pattern and wool to make a small project. You need to bring a small basic sewing kit: scissors, small pins (applique or the smallest you have) size 18 or 20 chenille needles (we will have some to borrow if you don’t have them), thimble and anything else you like to have while hand sewing. We will be demonstrating with perle cotton and wool threads. If you have some already, we would appreciate your bringing your own threads. Otherwise the teachers will supply your thread. You may also want to use embroidery thread if you are used to that.
Thirty-seven members signed up for a specific project at the October meeting. Until Monday October 31, you may still select a specific project by e-mailing Kathy Mueller at email@example.com.
Choices are: Project #1 a small strawberry pattern suitable for turning into a pincushion (5 spots left), project #2 a small picture of a bird and basket (3 spots left) project #3 St. Nick (3 spots left) and project 4 a penny rug candle mat. (class is filled but we will start a new table for guests and members who did not sign up.
Kits are free for members and $5.00 for guests. We will have enough kits for 8 tables of 8 students…or until our wool runs out.
Hope to see you there!
