I will be teaching two Fanciful Utility workshops on Sunday:

IMG_7664A Sampler of Pincushions (Limit 15) 

Anna Worden Bauersmith, author of Fanciful Utility, will instruct attendees in making their choice of two or three small period styles of pincushions.  All materials for your chosen designs will be provided and instructions for all designs will be given to each attendee.  Participants should bring: a sewing basket with scissors, thimble, pins, needle, seam ripper, marking pencil/pen and a notepad.

IMG_7666Make a “Pocket of Pockets” (Limit 15)

Using the techniques from Fanciful Utility, make one of the most useful and versatile rolled work pockets.  Also known as a sewing case or housewife, this work pocket is made of period correct fabrics in a row of pockets, bound with ribbon.  Use it to hold your thread winders, flat tools, small scissors, buttons, a cloth measure and still have plenty of room for more. The pocket-of-pockets is rolled or folded up and tied closed with a ribbon.  Participants should bring: a sewing basket with scissors, thimble, pins, needle, seam ripper, marking pencil/pen and a notepad.
