*Half-Day workshop:
Supply List Short Day
This will be a special short class, under three hours, so not much fabric needed. It’s process oriented. Following the workshop, having learned the method, you’ll be in a better position to select fabrics for a future project. Everyone will benefit by example – seeing what happens with the variety of fabrics used by everyone else.

Follow the supply list.  Bring enough yardage of one stripe fabric from which you will cut, in class, FOUR identical 8.5" squares of fabric. If you have other stripe fabric at home bring that as a back up or if you are undecided. Best to not launder the fabric.

It’s a quick and unusual class, suited for a group. Part technique, part design and always interesting.

This is the Xcentric I'm currently making with Alexander Henry fabric
