Felted Flower Wine & Cheese

This past week we had a full class for our Felted Flower Wine & Cheese Craft Party. It was great to see many repeat wine and cheesers as well as some brand new faces in the class. To make this project, Margaret Hluch taught us a wet felting technique. She had so many gorgeous fibers and fleece to choose from.

Everyone created flowers in their own favorite color schemes.

These flowers can be worn as a pin for your clothing, a bag, or tied to a strap of a dress or tank.

Letter Pendant Wine & Cheese Craft Party

Last week we had a private Wine & Cheese Party for Giselle Lai and a bunch of her friends. She and her friends chose Chrissy Gemmill's class, "Letter Pendants." In this class, you get to create pendants with your own personal messages.
My favorite part about all of the classes is watching what people do. It is amazing to see how each person approaches the same craft in a different way.
In the end, each person chose a message that was special to them and left with a beautiful necklace!
Here are some pictures from when this class was originally taught last November.
Kari gave the class to her sister as a birthday gift. What a great gift!
