About the Event
Why should bookmaking only be made of paper? Fabric Books are a perfect way to practice new hand stitches, create stories with whimsical applique, or even use up leftover blocks or fabric ephemera you have been saving. Pati will lead you through the process to create a simple fabric book, with boatloads of options to make your book uniquely yours. We will explore pockets, fold out pages and how to spice up those old blocks that didn’t make it into a quilt.
A fabric book is a wonderfully tactile way to share small textile compositions. A blank book is the perfect size to take with you for those moments when you'd like to do some stitching and applique projects, think textile journaling. The world is your oyster - what would you put into your book? Will you create a book as a gift for a child, a place to store memories or show it off on your coffee table?
This is the first class in a series to create a one of a kind, beautifully handcrafted fabric book that can be used as a slow-stitch journal or sampler, a children's book of texture and color, or an art book filled with your own compositions. This class focuses on the bookmaking process - to decorate you book consider signing up for Pati's Slow Stitching Class or her Whimsical Appliqué Class. You can sign up for each of the classes individually or save by signing up for The Making of a Fabric Book which includes all three classes. Whatever you choose, you'll enjoy a creative and fun-filled time.
Skill level: ✂️
Welcome newbies! This class is for all creatives!! No prior stitching experience is needed to take this class.
The supply list will be mailed upon registration.
