STASH BUSTER BASKETS – CAROL SWEETON Fee: TBA. We will spend the day hooking a covering for a small basket (supplied). This is an excellent way to use up backing and leftover wool, yarn etc. I will discuss the unique hooking issues with this project and demonstrate how to complete it.
Participants should bring their own backing (which needs to be at least 2ft wide) and materials from their own stash along with their hooking frames/hoops, scissors, strong thread that matches the background and yarn to whip the edge.
PUNCH NEEDLE EMBROIDERY– ELAINE ALLERTON A fun day, learning the basics of a new craft - punch needle embroidery. When finished they look like miniature rug mats!!! A new skill to add to the many your already have.
WHAT you will need to bring – scissors, plastic embroidery hoop – lip locking one (available at Michaels, Walmart and John Halls in Paris) Bring your own punch needle if you have one and if not please notify me so we can make arrangements to get you one.
I will also share with you on how to finish and ways to display your finished work.
KITS – will be $15.00 to $20.00 ……depending on size will include the pattern and lots of flosses!
