|Creating the loop closure for the Itty Bitty Boro Book|
Sign-ups for my Winter workshops and classes are already starting! Hope you'll consider taking part in one of the following scheduled workshops or a multi-session class at The Art League School. Stretch yourself with a one day hand stitching project or take a leap into a more in-depth course on either dimensional stitching using nature as your muse or creating memory-inspired stitched works using words. All workshops and classes are online (Zoom) and are recorded.
One day workshops (5.5 hours including a half hour break) are $65 and some have a kit option. Class size is limited so if you are interested, please contact me asap. Leave a comment here or email me (threadborn@gmail).

|Fabric Stash Cloth Books showing multi-layered covers.|
This project was originally inspired by a small swatch book of Japanese fabrics. Different-sized swatches made for interesting combinations of pattern and color. Create your own version showcasing treasures from your own fabric collection or insert cloth pages for future hand stitching and collaging. The book cover features a textural layered variation of reverse applique with the option of adding a Trapunto (stuffed) element. Complete your book with a stab stitch binding. Cover kit available in selected colors for an additional $15 plus shipping.

|Stitch Boro-style collages on your itty bitty pages.|
Design a small format (3" square), accordion-style cloth book using special fabric scraps from your own collection (or select the kit option). Arrange your scraps on wool felt squares and embellish with Sashiko-style Running stitch patterns for a beautiful and rustic book. Two kit options available: Bare bones: wool felt squares and ribbon $10 plus shipping. Full kit: Bare bones plus assorted fabric scraps, cheesecloth and 2 buttons for closures $20 plus shipping.
