Fun with Figures


1 Day Workshop

Sun, 13th March, 2022

10:00am - 4:00pm

In this workshop you will be given two images for you to appliqué and use to create a picture, which you can also personalise, perfectly in time for Mother’s Day on 27th March or just to hang on your own wall. You will be able to add extras...a cat for instance instead of Fred the dog which we can draw in during the day it if you would like to. Alternatively, there will be smaller images to use to make a needle-case or notebook cover.
Janine’s sewing style is relaxed and you will be able to achieve a lot by the end of the day.
