Create a decorative fabric scroll using simple hand-stitching and fabric collage techniques. We’ll start with fairly narrow, long scrolls (approximately 2-3 inches wide and 1-3 feet long) so they come together quickly and easily. This is a good opportunity for both novice and experienced crafters. No previous sewing or art experience is needed, just an interest in spending some creative time in a calm atmosphere with other like-hearted people. These scrolls make a nice display in any room and also make great gifts. In week one, we’ll prepare the foundation fabric and begin hand-stitching our scrolls. We’ll review easy stitching practices and choose from an abundant selection of fabric scraps. In week two, we’ll cover several techniques for how to make and attach the beginning anchor and ending closure for the scrolls. High on the list of possible anchors are fabric-wrapped driftwood and old wooden thread spools. For the closures, we’ll include how to make a knotted cord and ways of using buttons and grommets. Weeks three and four will be an opportunity to continue stitching and playing with color and texture, completing one or more scrolls. Materials provided: Fabrics for the foundation and the top layer, threads and driftwood We will send a list of what else to bring when you register.
