Rose Pouch Workshop at A&S
- Greetings -
As mentioned at the meeting there will be a Rose Pouch Workshop at Kingdom A&S on Saturday. The objective is to create at least 5 Rose Pouches in the style that we do for the Western Queens.
The workshop will cover the following:
- overview of the styles of the rose pouches including colors, size, etc.
- applique techniques including padding up
- appropriate stitches for filling if this is the preferred style
- creating sharp and defined edges for the petals and leaves
- constructing the final pouch
- additional detailing - drawstring, tassels, top edging, etc.
The following materials will be provided:
- floss if doing filling stitches
- felt if doing applique
- edging materials for each technique
- background fabric
- possibly lining fabric
- some sewing thread
Students will provide:
- usual stitching materials including needles and scissors
- $20 which will go to the WK Needleworkers Guild
- a promise to return the pouch completed within 1 year
- additional finishing materials
The workshop will be held in my personal pavilion sunshade on Saturday from the beginning of 1st period until lunch.
RSVPs are required!
A minimum of 5 people need to sign up for this workshop to be a go.
