Bonnie Turner from Log Cabin Fabrics will join us in November for a morning lecture and trunk show where she will share her treasury of projects, highlighting her stunning crazy quilt embroidery work. In the afternoon class we will learn some basic embroidery stitches, silk ribbon embroidery and other embellishing techniques to create a mock crazy quilt needle case. It is called “mock” crazy quilting because there is no piecing of the foundation of the project so we can move on quickly to the creation of them embroidery stitches.
There is nothing like hand work to relax and enjoy the creative process. This portable project is a perfect take-along for traveling or those waiting room times. There is no advance prep work for the class and no machine is needed. These darling needle cases make wonderful holiday gifts for your favorite quilting buddies.
