We will be offering a WOOL MITTEN ORNAMENT CLASS, taught by Kathy, on Thursday July 14 from 7-9 and again on Saturday July 16 from 1-3. It's time to start thinking about Christmas and this is a great way to start. Our mittens, shown above, are cut from felted wool. Back and front are stitched together using the buttonhole stitch - very easy to learn if you don't already know how to do it. You will be given lots of ideas on how to decorate your ornament for the class and others you may like to make on your own. We'll also give you ideas on other shapes that will make, easily, into ornaments. The models shown are decorated with a wool heart and a button of your choice. They are enhanced at the cuff with Hot Wire. Hot Wire is made by Kreinik and is a metallic cord around a wire that can create just about any shape you'd like and then is tacked down or glued, depending on the materials with which you are working. Just think of how you can use this new product. It would make great garland on a Christmas tree ornament or decor on a Christmas ball ornament. Ideas just keep coming. Kathy, the instructor, is a quilter of both regular cotton quilts and felted wool quilts and penny rugs used mostly for decoration. You will receive a kit to create an ornament and all necessary materials and lots of ideas. All you need to bring is a pair of scissors that will cut the wool. Additional kits will be available for purchase.
Sign up now for the class, seats are limited. $25.00 per person.
