One of the things we love to host around here, is a quality workshop event. These workshops build community and teach new skills while introducing you to your favorite designers! Coming up on Saturday, April 21 is our 4th annual spring workshop, S.p.R.u.N.g!
Kathy Cardiff, one of our favorite designers, is returning to the Shoppe on Saturday, April 21 for this springtime event. Kathy designs patterns for her company, A Cottage at Cardiff Farms and has spent the last half of the year promoting her new book, "A Cottage Garden."
Since you do not bring your sewing machines to this workshop, you've got to sew your backgrounds at home. The workshop fee includes a complete wool kit, specialty instruction from Kathy and a gourmet, catered luncheon!
If you are in the local area, you can still swing by and get your prep work on the days we are open.
If you're out of town, haven't registered and now want to attend...oh boy...we've got some challenges. You might be spending the night with your sewing machine! Better give us a call!
In this workshop you will be learning Kathy's layering techniques and her favorite stitches. If you attended our Homespun & Holly Christmas Workshop this past December, the project for S.p.R.u.N.g is the same scale as her "First Day of Christmas...." project she did for Homespun & Holly which is pictured here below....
I haven't shown this before because it was only available to people who attended last year's Christmas workshop here at the Shoppe. I'm thinking, we might continue this theme for the 2018 Homespun & Holly.
We love Kathy's nature inspired designs and we love how she incorporates these fabulous textured backgrounds found in our Shoppe, with her wool projects. It gives everything she does a touch of class and sophistication.
We've been making some exclusive new Fat Quarter Bundles of these fabrics, but you can also order 1/2yd bundles! Just click here. Pictured here are the Neutral Bundle and Rustic Bundle. Both bundles are perfect for backgrounds and I know that around here we can always use more background fabrics for our projects! There's never enough.
If there is a time of year where we love to work with wool, it's definitely in the fall seeew we thought we'd add a Vintage Halloween Bundle to our mix as well. These bundles are made-to-order and are seasonal offerings. This means that I will change them often as we are preparing for different seasons. Seeew...there's no telling how long they will last! As I always say, get it when I'm showing it to ya!
But for today...I'm done.
Thanks for joining us today and stay seeew-cial! ~ Brian
