Sew What? A Sun, Moon, and Stars Mobile!

Joy McFadden
Average rating:4.9Number of reviews:(30)
In this four session intermediate hand sewing class students will create a sun, moon, and stars themed mobile out of felt and ribbon.

Class experience

Students will improve their sewing skills by sewing curved and irregular shapes.  Focus will be put on making small, even stitches to increase stitch strength and allow for the items to be stuffed.  We will also learn about using pins effectively and safely to provide stability while sewing.  Finally, we will learn about the use of appliqué as a decorative method of sewing.
I have a Bachelor of Arts in Theatre Arts with a focus on costuming and performance and a Master of Library and Information Science.  I have over 30 years of experience in sewing and embroidery and have taught hand sewing and machine sewing in both one on one and group settings.
