Visiting Artist - Tiny Memory Quilt Workshop
Come create a small fabric memorial in the company of a supportive sewing circle. We will touch on the healing nature of textiles and hand-sewing, and by the end of the workshop, you will have created tiny memory quilts that you can keep for yourself or give away to friends and family.
In this course, we cover classic hand-sewing techniques like the running stitch, back stitch, and tailors knot. Perfect for beginners and intermediates.
Please bring fabric that holds a special connection between you and the loved one you would like to honor if possible. We will incorporate this fabric into your quilts.
