Program Description

Event Details

In stunning jewel tones, crazy-quilting is a craft of historic appeal. We are updating the method by using machine-embroidery as the piecing is done.  This is a great project for exploring the different stitches of the sewing machine. The piece created from velvets, satins, brocades and corduroys can be used later to create a purse, a glasses case or pouch. All materials and equipment provided.
Participants must have been certified or already familiar with a sewing machine.  For adults and teens ages 11+.
