Mans' Best Friends?


1 Day or 2 Days

Sat, 14th August, 2021 to Sun, 15th August, 2021

10:00am - 4:00pm

For those who love their four legged friends a fun day creating a small quilt, wallhanging or cushion, either use my drawing or bring a simple photo of your dog or cat and I will help you transform it into fabric, possibly telling a little story, the animal can be realistic or cartoon like but simple and use stitches and fabric to bring it to life, even start planning a larger quilt, to speed up the process the appliqué can be bonded or raw edge or needle turn if you prefer
