Loopy Scarf Wine & Cheese Craft Party

Wednesday night we had Rebekah Miller teaching us the secrets to making her famous Loopy Scarves! These scarves have been a Muse best seller for three years and Rebekah decided this year to teach others how to make it themselves! We had a full class for this one. First Rebekah taught everyone how to crochet around a ring. This was a little hard but everyone caught on eventually. Some of us needed a little extra concentration...
After the hard part was over, we chose our strands from the various colorful bundles of yarn.

They turned out great!

Needle Felted & Stitched Bird Pin Mimosa Make & Take

So much fun on Sunday making Needle Felted & Stitched Bird Pins! Margaret Hluch taught this class before and just like last time it was a lot of fun! I even made a bird again this time because I liked it so much last time! First Margaret showed us the easy technique of needle felting. Then we cut out our bird and chose our colors of fleece. Next the fun began- needle felting! We then embellished our birds with stitching. Margaret showed us the basic stitches to choose from and there were so many gorgeous threads to use.
All the pins turned out great and everyone wants to take more needle felting classes! They are in luck- we are doing a needle felted scarf in January! Don't miss out!
