Folded Fabric Technique Class: This technique class teaches us fabric folding techniques to create several different flowers and bow tie blocks.

My-Tie Chatelaine: This makes a great gift for the sewer or quilter that has everything. It’s very portable and cute at the same time. This class requires only one man’s silk tie, matching thread and needle because there is some hand sewing involved, sewing machine, a 1/2 inch magnetic clasp, a decorative button, and sewing supplies. In this class I also will be teaching you how to make a tassle from one skein of DMC floss. I will also be providing wool for the needle book, and will have for sale the black scissors that you see in the picture. They will be 10$ a pair.

It’s collapsable and portable, and fits right into your sewing basket. For this class you will need to bring 1 fat quarter, sewing machine, and the usual sewing supplies. I will be providing the mat board and the hoop required for finishing your trash can.
