Lecturer: Vickie Clontz
Join Vickie as we celebrate the many wonders of wool with this fun-filled powerpoint presentation! We’ll touch on a variety of techniques, from traditional hand-stitched applique, to more adventurous embellishments such as felting and dyeing wool with Easter egg dye. Vickie will share lots of tips and tricks, and will bring samples from her patterns as well as her magazine and book projects. Get ready to be inspired to try your hand at wool!
