$ 85  

Walk down any Oregon beach or stream and you will find tons of them – pebbles in all sizes, shapes and colors. Many are polished smooth from their tumbling journey in the sea and many have inclusions of quartz or fossils; you can even find the occasional agate scattered in with the other stones. In this workshop you will learn how to make surprisingly realistic dimensional pebbles scattered over a sandy background to create a small pebble sampler. This is a handwork project; no sewing machine is needed for the class.
Skill Level: confident beginner and up (class kit available)– no sewing machine required.

Please be courteous to others by arriving for class with the correct supplies. Contact me  helene.m.knott@gmail.com if you have any questions.

Materials fee $15 paid directly to instructor at beginning of class includes:

Fabrics to make a small page sized sampling of pebbles, stabilizer, batting, thread, fabrics, pattern/instructions and hand-sewing needle. The kit fabrics may vary from those shown.

Supplies You Need to Bring to Class in addition to materials provided by instructor:
Scissors: A pair of small to medium craft scissors suitable for cutting fabric, stabilizer and batting and scissors you don’t mind cutting paper with.

Other Incidental Supplies:
• Lighting: additional lighting may be helpful; a portable Ott light would be appropriate. You may or may not need these things; they are mainly for comfort.
• Extension cords and plug strips (if bringing additional lighting): check to see if these will be provided or if it’s advisable to bring your own.
• A Pillow: Many venues have less than comfortable chairs, a pillow may help.

Most of the required supplies for your classes can be pre-ordered from Collage. They will be ready and waiting for you to pick up when you arrive at the retreat. For further info and to place your order, contact:
