Patchwork Jeans Craft Party

Stitching is so relaxing so I was really excited for last night's craft party, Patchwork Jeans! Margaret Hluch has an amazing collection of hand dyed fabrics and threads to work with. I'm very envious of her embroidery floss organization!

 We also had the option of incorporating photo transfers into our patches.  This way you could really personalize your jeans!

 We learned several different stitches to use in our patchwork.  & some of us invented our own stitches (Clare!)

 They all turned out so cool!  I am anxious to see the finished products with added patches!  We are all off to a very good start!

Arm Knitting Craft Party

 Liz Matheny taught another one of her popular Arm Knitted Infinity Scarf classes! Everyone loves this class because you leave with a beautiful scarf & the knowledge to make more for gifts & yourself!
 At first, it takes a little patience to get the hang of casting on...

But once you get the hang of it, the rest comes quickly! 
 The beautiful results... Perfect timing now that the weather has started getting cooler!  Looking good ladies!
