Summer 2023 Workshop: Bitty Boro Needle Book Coming in August!

Bitty Boro Needle Books in Traditional Indigo.

Having just finished a rockin' Spring that featured my Creative Trapunto class and two different Mandalas workshops, I'll be taking a break the rest of June through July. Of course, I'll be focusing on some of my own stitched work and also gearing up for the next workshop in August...my Bitty Boro Needle Book! 

Registration for the Bitty Boro Needle Book starts on Monday, June 19. 

Email me at threadborn@gmail.com to register!

Needle Books showing decorative bindings.

In this two 2-hour session workshop, you'll create a sweet 3" square needle book to hold your favorite needles. Decorate the cover with Boro-style patchwork and Sashiko-style stitch patterns using Running stitch. The inside pages are made of soft wool blend felt. Learn how to bind your book with beads and stitch and create a decorative button and loop closure. The small size makes it great for travel...just throw it in with your stitching project and go!

Inside pages of soft wool blend felt to hold your needles.

I'm offering three class sections. There needs to be a minimum of 4 students for the workshop to run. I'm trying to keep the class size to 10 but am willing to add a few extra participants.

Tuition is $55.

All class times are Eastern Daylight Time. If it's easier...check the time in Washington, DC.

Tuesday, August 8 & 15: 10:00 AM-12:00 PM (this class section usually fills quickly!)

Wednesday, August 9 & 16: 7:00-9:00 PM

Sunday, August 13 & 20: 3:00-5:00 PM

All workshop sessions are recorded and the recordings remain available to students through the end of October 2023.
