Visiting Artist - Talisman Quilt Workshop
Learn to harness the power of fabric to make manifest your intention. In this workshop, we cover classic hand-sewing techniques like the running stitch, back stitch, and tailors knot. Perfect for beginners and intermediates. We make a small project from start to finish that will teach you many of the hand-sewing skills you can use in larger quilting projects. Please bring some fabric with magical powers to share with the group.
