Join me at my studio for a weekend of fun with other makers. We will be making 6 handmade items, all which would make a perfect holiday gift. Learn techniques for working with some of the newest fabrics like Kraft-Tex, a eco-friendly leather-like paper fabric that is washable and can be sewn. The weekend includes meals, recipes, some patterns and will be a lot of fun. Bring your own sewing machine that you are used to using and set up your maker’s station on a table at my studio for the weekend. We will have hors d’oeuvres and punch and make a quick project, a quilted artwork frame, from 6 – 9 p.m. Friday night.

Then return on Saturday morning (10 a.m. – 5 p.m.) for hot coffee, tea and a continental breakfast. In the morning we will make a “leather” tech stand from Kraft-Tex. After a box lunch, we will do another Kraft-Tex project, a Ready-to-Travel Backgammon board. Then we will finish up the afternoon making a “leather” & ribbon key fob from your scraps. These eco-friendly items make great gifts for men, women or children.

Sunday (10 a.m. – 5 p.m.) we will make a couple of fabric gift items, both from Terry Atkinson Designs. In the morning we will work on a Zippy Strippy zippered bag made from 2 1/2″ strips. Then in the afternoon, we will make a fat sack which is great for carrying groceries, but also would work well as a reusable gift bag. Also, on Sunday, enjoy a warm brunch with bottomless coffee, tea and water.
