Do you have small piece you want to finish but don’t have the time and energy to be creative with how to finish it? I will bring with me my stash of finishing supplies and we can get you started and maybe finished with that piece. This includes glue, cardboard, batting, fabric, thread, beads., etc. You can use any of my supplies when you sign up this class.
No Kit: You bring your finished pieces (and any accessories you might have in mind)-- I try to supply the rest.
Sewing Machine, Iron, and Cord maker will be available to all students.
I have been cross stitching since I was in grade school, and haven’t stopped since. Through the years I have learned how to frame and finish my own pieces to save money. I love to work on small pieces that can be done quickly and displayed. I love using my creativity to finish ornaments in different ways.
