An Almanac with Attitude

All is done by hand. This is a technique class where you will be able to create an extraordinary picture by means of naïve needle turn appliqué. The picture will then be enhanced by hand embroidery and bead work. In this workshop you will also be taught to apply a mitre corner binding to a small quilt.
