After posting about the new day passes for classes at Spellbound, I received a few emails that I thought best answered here, as the questions apply to everyone really.
Q: Do I have to know how to embroider to take your Joy Stitched Sampler class?
A: Nope! Not at all. If you have never stitched before, we will set you up and get you going! I'll teach you a few different stitches and you'll have more than enough skill by then to finish your project. I'll also be bringing the stitching projects shown here to class for inspiration, as your project can be as freely designed as you wish.
Q: Do I have to bring anything?
A: Nope! We'll have everything you need to complete the project on hand, but you may want to rummage around a bit and bring a few found treasures that will make your project extra special to you.
Q: Will you teach me how to free motion stitch?
A: Sure! That'd be a fun thing to incorporate on your project, good idea!
Q: I know you're bringing a bunch of your vinatage findings and trims to sell at the market, but will students be able to purchase them to use on our projects?
A: Sure! I'll bring things to share and things to sell that would work well on your project.
Q: As for your Joyeux Noel Banner, I've seen you make something similar before that was more ornate. Can I do that on mine if I want?
A: Absolutely! I'll bring all the items and glitter and varieties so that you can make the banner of your dreams, be it more simple and refined or bold and beautiful.
Q: Will you have extra kits for sale so I can make 2?
A: Yep! If you are speedy, you might even complete them both in class :).
Q: Can I write what I want on my banner?
A: Anything that will fit, sure, and I'll help you write it out if you don't love your handwriting.
Q: Will you be bringing your handmade ornaments?
A: Yes indeedy, and for those of you that were at the Silver Bella years ago where my table runneth over, the scene this year will look familiar.
For those that weren't there, here's a photo...I'd gone through a major letting go phase and am amassing a similar scene for this sale as well. I'll have loads of vintage items, handcrafted items, and supply items with me.
Q: Will your cute friend Kelly be coming like she has to other events?
A: Yes!! And she'll be bringing her jewelry for the Dreamland Mercantile too!
And another question that just came in:
Q: If I buy a day pass can I take both your classes that day?
A: Yep! You can take both mine, or one of mine and one of another teacher's, whatever you choose.
Pretty sure that's all the questions I've received so far, don't hesitate to ask another in the comments here if you want!
