class time

Good morning class, please be seated quietly.
My name is Jodie and I am your teacher for today.
The selvedge snap purse - quick colourful and sure to be a hit for your school fete or Mothers Day stall...and yes of course you don't have to make it in selvedge.
PVC and paper wallets - a favourite I have to admit. These even passed the "what handmade gift to give a teenager" test. Quick, easy to adapt to different tastes and because they're PVC they do rate highly on the potential swearing chart.

Button rings and brooches, Yes I know you hardly need a class to learn this, but it might be a good class for those teen and tween girls who love a bit of bling. They could whip up the odd hundred of these and give them to all their friends.

These are the three workshops I will be teaching at Stitches next week. There are heaps of workshops to choose from and also heaps and heaps of free studios that you can just turn up to.

I am almost kind of wishing that I was not a participant, so I could go to some of these workshops. I'd bust a valve to go to a screen printing class with the Ink & spindle team !!

Oh and by the way - 2,511 inches sewn...just for the ruffle.

We are almost there !!!!!

  3. Do we really have to wait until you're rich? Can't you just come over here and do your workshops anyway? You're already famous!
