Crazy for Bags!
Thursday (#1096A), 12:30 pm
Saturday (#1096C), 12:30 pm
We love purses, bags and totes! Learn great basic bag-making skills which you can later apply to almost any pattern. I will share tips for texturing and stabilizing and you’ll learn how easy it is to install zippers in your projects.
Make bags that look like you BOUGHT them, not like you MADE them.
Friday (#1097B), 8:30 am
Experience the fun of creating texture on fabric using Superior Threads' great new product, Texture Magic.
You will see an extensive trunk show of quilts, purses and bags, clothing and children's items, holiday decor, and more.
Learn how to obtain different effects by using various stitches, threads, fabrics, and battings.
The uses for Texture Magic are endless and sure to excite!
