Many of us have fond memories of sunny days spent on the beach. Sit back and imagine yourself on the beach right now as you gaze at at this wonderful, new wall hanging created from hand dyed wool. The pattern for Watching Waves is only available with the purchase of our Limited Edition Hand Dyed Wool Kit. This bundle provides you with the 8 beautiful colors shown above plus the black wool backing fabric needed to create the wall hanging. Watching Waves Wall Hanging measures approximately 12" x 16". If you're a thread lover, you'll love working with the optional hand thread kit chosen especially for this project. It includes three different colors of hand painted silk thread, silk ribbon, pearl cotton and wool tapestry thread. We also have the "wavy" hanger shown in the photo made of wire and wood.

You have finished your first quilt top so now what? How do you turn it into a quilt? We will explore several methods of how to turn that beautiful quilt top into a finished quilt and get you started. You must have a quilt top already completed. Due to space constraints, we must limit the quilt size to no larger than lap size. Class size will also be limited so don’t wait too long to sign up and get your supply list!
Please call or stop by the shop if you would like to sign up for a class.
