Woolfelt Hand-applique Coasters Class

Ready for some sewing??  I've had a bunch of requests for a hand-sewing/applique class... well here it is!  Come do some stitchin' with me!

$40 includes all supplies!

Sat. Jan 25th, 2014
9am - Noon
La Jolla Shores Park (La Jolla, CA)
Teacher:  Sue Allemand

Learn all the basics of using & preparing woolfelt, cutting and applying your applique pieces, and hand-stitching from start to finish!  Blanket-stitch, running stitch, and primitive whip-stitch will be taught!   You'll receive all the supplies to complete ALL 4 coasters (see picture) - along with pattern, floss and needle!  All you need to bring is a lawnchair! 

We'll sit, stitch & chat the morning away, while spending some time in the calming air at the beach!

What do you want to work on this year??  What are your goals & dreams for 2014?  Do you want to focus more?  Take time for yourself?  Get a new job that makes you happy and inspires you?  Exercise more & get strong??  Learn to paint, draw, or just be more creative in general?  Whatever it is that you want to manifest and work toward... this class will help you envision it and focus!
We'll create a gorgeous Mixed Media background with fun texture techniques and collage -- have a little chat and bonding time with your fellow classmates about their goals and wishes -- and then we'll start adding our "visions" through words & pictures that will help you remember your goals every time you see your painting!

No two Life visions are the same.... so no two vision boards will be the same (just like mine & Stephanie's above)!  We'll teach you the techniques, help with direction and give you prompts - the rest will be up to you!   I can't wait to see all the beauty and hope that's created!  Oh and did I mention the class includes ALL the supplies & BREAKFAST??  All you need to bring is yourself, a jacket in case it's chilly (because we WILL be at the beach) - and a lawn chair if you wish!
So come join us!  Here are the details!  We can't wait to meet you all!!
Just click on the CLASSES button above - to register!
