Fifty Shades of White
Participants will make a small art piece in neutral shades of white, cream, ivory, etc. We will layer vintage linens, laces, trims, buttons and odd items into simple compositions easy to complete. Students will learn proper handling, cleaning, and sewing techniques for using lace, crochet, trims, tatting, etc.
Supplies: Vintage doilies, laces, trims, christening gowns, photo transfers of vintage family photos, dresser scarves, kitchen towels, buttons, crochets, anything at all.
Straight pins, neutral embroidery thread and needles. Hand sewing only, no machines needed. Backing fabric and thin batting for your sample, fat quarter size is good. If you have a runner or towel or special piece for your ground, bring batting and backing to go with that.
Instructor will bring linens and laces and buttons to share. Do not buy anything for this class! Well....you can go to a thrift shop for your pieces of white, but don't spend much!
