Class Description

Create a heirloom that is beautiful and functional – a crazy quilt purse!  Betty will guide you step-by-step in making this fashion forward accessory.  You will learn to piece and embellish your own unique piece of art.  We will dye lace to add to the purse.  A partial kit ($30) will include the frame, shibori ribbon and lace to dye.  You bring fabrics, threads and other embellishments you wish to include.  Betty will have some fabrics and embellishments for sale.
