At our 2018 Fall Workshop, Michelle May invites us to join her “for a lively adventure down the rabbit hole into the world of Folk Art Fusion.” Michelle refers to her workshops as “play dates” and promises to “inspire individual creativity with projects that can actually be completed and not end up in your UFO pile!” She will guide us through the completion of two different projects- Beekeeper Pincushion on Friday and Heart Felt Notes on Saturday. You will learn Michelle’s “signature reverse wool applique technique” and then make your project unique with embellishments. No sewing machine is required. You need only bring 2 pairs of scissors to the play date. Michelle provides a kit which includes wool felt, Valdani threads, embellishments, and everything else you will need to complete the project. Kit fee is $35.00, payable to Michelle at the class. To see these class projects go to The Raspberry Rabbits website- www.theraspberryrabbits.com and click on Classes. For the Beekeeper Pincushion you will choose one of the five flower designs shown; this will be done at the class. And you will be able to select felt colors and embellishments for your pincushion. The Hearts could be either postcards (as shown), finished as small accessories, or added to a larger piece. This should be a super fun workshop/play date! These classes sold out at the Houston Quilt Market last year and also at the Mid-Atlantic Quilt Show. Sign up early to avoid disappointment! Michelle will also have other patterns and supplies available for purchase. You can pay her at the end of the class for your kit plus any additional goodies you have selected.
