Registration is now open

I've always thought about how life can be likened to a road, it has straight stretches, but more often than not it also has many winding corners and mountain ranges. 
As we travel along our road, we also make many stops. Maybe it's to raise children, maybe it's marriage, separation or death.
But, no matter what the road is like, we are often blessed to find some fabulous friends along the way, and some wonderful places.
I wanted to make a wall hanging that reflected that in a quirky kind of way.
This quilt reflects for me the road taken to my house and I would love for you to join me in this journey. 

The road to my house
Make a delightful quilted wall hanging with me. This quilt will be unique and personal to you as it narrates the story of the road to your house.

Celebrate your very own journey.

Together we will use our sewing machines for some free motion stitching and 
a little hand stitching to add depth.  
Add a smattering of teabags, some vintage linen, an assortment of special treasures 
from your sewing room to embellish 
and you will have a wall hanging that's very individual and incredible.  

I will be there every step of the journey to advise you and guide you. 
Make your wall hanging the same size as mine or make it smaller.
As we work together you can follow my directions and explore ideas generated in the workshop or you can be adventurous and put your own spin on your project, whichever road you take, remember, it’ll lead to your house.

Play with fabric, step away from the burden of producing 'perfect' all the time. The quirkiness that you lend to this wall hanging will make it unique and a stunning piece of art.

This workshop includes recycled new and vintage materials and will allow you to include as much or as little detail as you want to in the embellishing. All stitches are easy and I will help you if you get stuck with easy to follow directions, photos and videos.

Work on this project at your own leisure, the wee stitcheries lend themselves to being 
popped into your purse and taken with you. Finish the hand stitching while you wait for the children, or at home while you watch tv. 
The class blog will remain open for an unlimited time.

COST:  $US55.00
START DATE:  11th September 2011

Join me for loads of fun in my brand new class as we share our journeys with each other.

Feel free to take my class button above for your blog.
If you have any questions, don't hesitate to ask, I am always only an email away.

Hey CraftyCaLynn, sorry I don't run the internet classes any longer. I will still run the 'in person' classes here in New Zealand. Not sure where you are, but might be an option.
