Learn the basics of whipstitch wool appliqué while making a pin cushion.

Join Catherine to learn the basics of beautiful whipstitch wool appliqué while stitching the top of a useful pincushion. The class will include lots of tips and tricks for future projects. You cannot expect to finish the piece in the two-hour class, but Catherine will discuss adding embroidery stitches as embellishment and how to finish your square into a pincushion after all your stitching is done.
There is an optional $25 kit for this class.
