This two day class is held from 10:00am to 4:00pm each day. In this two-day workshop, you will combine fibers with textile mediums producing a fabric rich in luxurious shine and color. You will create two silk fusion pieces which will then be used to create a craic on the second day. The additional $60.00 workshop fee paid to the instructor includes silk tussah tigers, silk hankies; fabric medium; silk threads; Angelina fibers and gold leafing for embellishment; fiberglass screening; brushes and plastic drop cloths for the fusion process.
We have jobs that require the use of a sewing machine such as adding borders, and piecing bindings or quilt backs. We need people to prepare the pillowcase or other kits by selecting complementary fabrics, cutting and bagging them. We have to cut backs and batting and "make the sandwich" which we will bag and hand off to the longarm helpers. You can always come and work on your own Philanthropy project or we have quilt top kits prepared and ready for piecing. Bring all of your sewing supplies, a lunch and plenty to drink.
