Stitch Kitsch by Jennifer Heynen
In this class everyone will take home a useful pincushion that adds some fun to their sewing room. This is an easy class that only requires hand stitching. Students will have the opportunity to use wool, felt, and trims to add to their cotton quilting fabrics to complete their pincushion. The best part is coming away with a finished pincushion and the knowledge to make more for all of their sewing friends.
