come sew with me at Etsy.....

"Join us on Friday, September 24 for a workshop led by Samantha Cotterill of mummysam, in conjunction with the Dumbo Arts Festival. We'll play around with different techniques of embroidery as we work on a project from her new book, Fanciful Felties from Mummysam. This should be a fun evening as we dive into creating one of her characters, Charles. To make it even more entertaining, options will be provided to allow you to customize and make him your own. Whether it be choosing from one of several different faces, jackets, or sweaters, you are sure to come out of the workshop with something completely original. We are even including illustrated cut-out scenery to make a complete environment for him!"
