Spring Fever

Classes March 23, through March 26.
In like a lion out like a lamb Spring Classes

Special Guest Teachers will be here
Nadina Modica from Ecuador
Miss Vicky from OOOMPA LOOMPA Land

Nostalgia Board. I Am SEW  Happy . In this class you will be using unique sewing elements on a solid wooden board. You will paint it, apply collaged paper and then add some bees wax to it.  It is a great little whimsical piece of Art. If you would rather it have a different theme please bring nostalgic pieces that mean something to you! We will be using a hammer & nails. $29.00. 3 hours

Happy Birthday To Me. In this class we will be creating a background with collage papers, paint and glimmer mist spray . We will build a background of paint & vintage pattern pieces. We will then make a girl or boy to add to the background. You will then  dress them, make them a pet and finish it off with a bouquet of balloons. $29.00 3 hours

Make a lined cloth backpack.  All you need to know for this class is how to sew a straight line. Bring 1 ½ yards of your favorite fabric.  Everything else will be provided!  This is a really fun way to carry around your projects.  $20.00 4 hours

Nuno Felting is such a beautiful craft.  We will be teaching you the technique called NUNO Felting.  You will make a beautiful felted silk scarf. This is a class that takes an eight hour commitment.  You need to have upper body strength to be successful in this class. You will be so pleased with the end result.  $85.00 8 hours

Image transfer on fabric.  This is the easiest way I have found to transfer images onto fabric.  We will transfer images onto 8x10 sheets of white fabric.  We will do 4 sheets. You can then turn them into a book or use them on other projects.  They are fun for journals and banners. If you would like we will have vintage lace, buttons and hankies available to add on. $29.00 3 hours

Soldering made simple.  Pick out your favorite vintage bottle.  Collage it and choose the best top.  Shells, coral and crystals are a few of your choices.  Add a message in your bottle and then seal it all with solder. $29.00 3 hours

Make Resin Charms.  Learn how to make molds and then cast the resin.  If you have an object you would like to duplicate please bring it with you.  We will then turn it into a piece of jewelry.  $29.00 3 hours

Nostalgic Stitched Necklace.  Make a keepsake necklace that is a little bit of this and a little bit of that.  Using garters, buttons, keepsakes, vintage spools of thread and bows.  Using vintage bias tape an hand stamped muslin for your base.  Sew FUN!  You will get a kit with all of the things you need!  This is a no brainer! $29.00 2 hoursPosted by Picasa
