Patchwork Garden
Join Helen as she walks you through creating one of the precious stitcheries -- Stitch or Sew --your choice.  Each measures 10" x 10" and is created using the Colored Pencil tinting technique from Crabapple Hill Studio and super simple embroidery stitches.  This is a great fun class to explore how easy it is to add color to almost any project!  During class you'll color your picture and add the fixative.  Helen will also demonstrate the embroidery stitches you'll use after class to finish your embroidery once the project has dried.

Please don't hesitate to reach out to us if you have any questions at all!  Look forward to seeing you in class, Helen
