Fabric Postcard Class

Yesterday I taught my first class at Six Loose Ladies, the fiber store where I volunteer. It was a class on fabric postcards – we made valentines. There were 8 ladies, ranging in age from 13 to 60 something. Fabric post cards by Jean, Ann, and TamaraIt went very well and I am so pleased with what my students did. There were no major mishaps with the fusible web and everyone was patient with using the equipment and the constraints of our unfinished classroom space. We didn’t have the facilities for lots of sewing machines so the class was structured as a mostly fused project. I did take my machine so we could sew a little around the edges.

    HEY! I would have LOVED to come to that class!!!! Do you have any extra kits or directions? Or maybe I should request a private lesson :-)! Guess the travel charge might be a little over the top.
    Stay warm!
