Learn the art of needle felting and beautify your favorite wool sweater while doing it. This class will have you wishing you had more garments in your closet with frayed cuffs and holey sleeves, just so you can revitalize them with a felted appliqué. Choose a small project that you can tackle in this 2 hour session, and start to wear your imperfections with pride!
Impact: The life of well-loved clothing is prolonged using artistic mending.
Participant and Materials Requirements: Please bring a wool garment which needs repair, and a color image of a flower or other simple design as a pattern for your felted appliqué. Cashmere, merino, or lambswool garments work best.
