Introducing My Very Own STITCHED Workshop AND a Giveaway!!!

I am so so excited to share this with you today!!!! It's been in the planning stages for a few weeks now and it's seriously hurt me not to share it.

The big news? I'll be teaching (starting June 1st) my very own online workshop! Wow. It will be hosted by Alma Stoller and is part of the STITCHED Online Sewing and Fabric Workshops, 20+ video workshops taught by some amazingly talented instructors. The cost is $89 and when you register here you are auto-magically signed up for ALL the workshops!!!!That works out to be only $4.45 per workshop! My head just reels when I think of all the cool cool projects and techniques that you can view and review over and over again!

Project Sample for My Class!!!

My workshop is titled A Happy Day Mobile and is a brand new, never before taught, project that I designed to be a great introduction to Stitched Wire Art. I'll share all my tips and tricks for working with steel wire and I'll show you how to create different shapes including hearts, clouds, flowers, and more! I'll also share ways of taking your new skills further and  incorporating elements like vintage book text, patterned papers, metal paints, and fabric scraps to really make your shapes into beautiful little layered works of art. These can be used and adapted to create jewelry, embellishments for scrapbooks, journals, or art quilts, collage art, really wherever your imagination or fancy takes you!  Then, I'll show you how to combine them all into a mobile that's bright, fun, and sure to make any place you choose to hang it, well, happier.

Curious? Here's a little more about STITCHED:
Created by Alma Stoller, this is a new concept in online workshops in that you register once and receive access to a block of 20+ fabric and sewing workshops that are taught by some amazing instructors. There are workshops by Lynn Krawczyk,  Jill Verbick O'Leary, Jackie Bowcutt, Jennifer Ofenstein, Nikki Wheeler, Sara Lawson, Mollie Johanson, Ann Tucker, Tracie Lampe, Wendi Gratz, Vanessa Wilson, Joanna Martinez, Dale Anne Potter, Kelli Nina Perkins, Cindy Caraway, Deborah Boschert, Tammy Gilley, and Alma Stoller! You'll learn techniques like how to gelatin print, quilt, and sculpt fabric . You'll also learn how to make projects like a fab tiara,  an artist's journal,  a couple of amazingly cute felted hearts, and even a rolling pin sampler. Intrigued? More instructors are added throughout the year so you'll never be at a loss for something new to try! 

My workshop goes live June 1st but you can  sign up
But WAIT- there's more!!!! The first ten people to sign up will be entered to win a signed copy of my book!! I truly can't wait to see you there!!!
