Past meetings have included:
January 23- Many hands make light work! We made 11-no-sew fleece blankets for BlankieDepo.org!
November 21-We made paper snowflakes and embellished cards
September 26-Our project this meeting was fabric & paper beads. You roll strips of fabric or paper around a wood skewer, tack it down with a dab of glue and then embellish with beads, yarn or threads. Tiffany made a beautiful, double strand necklace with hers!
Solvy Scarves on 6/27/14: Step one is to lay fibers out on a piece of Sulky Solvy which is a water soluble stabilizer, add another layer of Solvy making a “sandwich”, pin & randomly sew through all three layers to secure the fibers using a complimentary thread. Rinse out Solvy in tepid water, blot dry on a towel and enjoy!
Needle Felting Mini- Workshop with Lise Gayle on 5/9/14: Lise supplied us with “try-it” felting supplies to create earrings and other fun objects!
