Create this adorable little bird using only wool and a felting needle – and a bit of embroidery floss. Some prior needle felting experience recommended, but not required if you are adventurous! Ages 13+ recommended as we will be working with sharp objects.
$20 per person. Includes fiber, needle, and foam.
You can choose to pay the full amount at time of registration or a 50% deposit with the remainder paid upon arrival.
This is just a good old Stitch ‘n Bitch plus food! I’ll make the soup and you can bring something to share if you like. You can knit, crochet, weave, spin – whatever you enjoy doing. Learn something new! Try out the wheels or looms in the studio. Share ideas. Bring friends. Spend an evening with like-minded, craft-oriented folks and maybe get a few rows done on your project!
