We are thrilled to be able to share our stitching journey in our Trunk Show. From Baltimore Appliqué to crazy quilts to wool appliqué, our love for texture and dimension is evident through our appliqué, embroidered embellishments, and ribbon work.

We are most excited to again be joining the faculty of Baltimore on the Prairie in Nebraska in 2024! We have a lot of fun planned for our Prairie appliqué classes next year. Registration for this event is now open, and if you have never attended, it is one to put on your bucket list. Lovely surroundings, fabulous people, and stitching galore! You will want to be there!!

Do you have a drawer full of vintage linens and lady’s handkerchiefs that you don’t want to throw away, but you don’t know what to do with them? Well, pull that drawer open, as we have the perfect project! Vintage hankies are used to create these graceful ladies holding a bouquet of embroidered flowers. In class, we will learn how to manipulate the handkerchief into a beautiful skirt, with enough left over to create a bodice and/or bonnet—or you can create your own dress combination with other fabrics for the bodice. There will be lots of design choices based on one beautiful hanky. As an added bonus, we will also learn how to play with doilies and lace trims to create a beautiful frame around your design. You may decide to make multiple ladies and turn them into a quilt. These gals are addicting to make, and you might not be able to stop at just one! There is no kit fee, but we will have a few hanky/background combinations available for sale.

Ribbon comes to life as beautiful blooms in this lovely bouquet. We were inspired by an antique chromolithograph print from Germany entitled “Zierblumen,” dated 1894. In this class, we will learn a variety of techniques for transforming ribbon into roses, carnations, fuchsia, pansies, geraniums, and forget-me-nots. We will use back-basting appliqué for most of the foliage, though we will create some leaves using ultrasuede and wired ribbon. Of course, if you have a favorite appliqué method, you are free to use it. You might even wish to create your greenery with wool appliqué. Basic embroidery stitches will add the finishing touches. Required kit includes all ribbon and special materials needed to complete the block. Come and join the fun!
