Seamless Vest or Top with Jill Lynn (shown above)
3 day class, Fri - Sunday ($360 + materials)
Have you ever asked yourself:
"How big do I make the resist pattern to get a well-fulled vest (or sleeveless tunic) in the size I want? Oh yeah, and preferably not cardboard stiff."

We will address these issues, and many more. By the end of class you will not only have a well made vest, or sleeveless tunic, but some great tools for sizing and control of fabric weight for all of your future projects.

Did I mention that the vest is reversible? To see more of Jill Lynn's work, check out her website at

Elements Shawl with Kay Kaduce
2 day class, Fri - Sat ($240 + materials)
This shawl combines a wonderful mix of wet felted wool, textured nuno felt and re-purposed wool. The unique design features the use of a number of techniques, such as wet and needle felting, machine sewing, beading, and embellishing. Be ready for the creative juice to flow.

Freeform Bracelet with Rona Horn
1 day class, Sun ($120 + materials)
This over the top project features wet felting around a wire armature, embellishing with a simplified free form peyote look and additional beading techniques. The free form peyote is stitched in parts then assembled during the embellishing process, allowing you to mix and match your pieces in the course of the design process.
