Eco-Felt Ornament Workshop

You are cordially invited to The Gifted Blog's Eco-Felt Ornament Workshop! This is my only workshop of the season, and I'm excited to announce there's a "buddy discount" for anyone who registers with a friend.

Who: You (and a friend)
What: Slow down during this stressful season and treat yourself to a mini crafting retreat! You'll make a set of three beautiful ornaments with eco-friendly felt.
When: Saturday, December 11th, 10:00-12:30 pm
Where: My home in Pasadena
Cost: $30 for individuals; $25 if you sign up with a friend

Some of you know how much I enjoy hand sewing, and this is the perfect chance to see for yourself how much fun it can be. Inspired by the beautiful work of Lupin Handmade's Laura Howard, I whipped up this eco-friendly take on the traditional bauble ornament (with her blessing)!

In this class, you'll use basic stitches to make a set of 3 beautiful ornaments. These can be used as gift toppers or given as a very special gift themselves. (Though I won't fault you if you can't bear to give yours away!) We'll use two kinds of material: a felt made with recycled plastic bottles, and felted wool and cashmere sweaters rescued from the thrift store. I'm so happy with the results of this combination!

Beginning and advanced hand sewers are welcome. I'm prepared to teach you how to thread a needle, or let you loose on the sequins to stitch away!

In short:
Saturday, December 11th
10:00-12:30 pm
Pasadena, CA
$30 / $25 with the buddy discount

  1. Charissa--Is this strictly for buddy couples? What if more than one buddy joins me? (I'm gonna ask a few others to join me, we'll see who bites.:) ).

    Really looking forward to it!

  2. @Betsy - Great question. Readers, if you want to sign up with 2 or more friends, just make sure you each have each others' names entered when you register, and I'll make sure you each get the discounted $25 rate!

    And if anyone has more questions, please let me know if I can clarify anything else.
