Make a one-of-a-kind umbrella, or a special occasion umbrella for a bridal or baby shower.

We'll be using Umbrella Joan's umbrella pattern and a 48-inch umbrella frame. The step-by-step pattern also includes trouble-shooting tips for sewing and assembly. Each umbrella requires 1.5yds of 43-inch to 45-inch all-over-print fabric. 

Stripes, plaids, and one-way designs require at least double the amount of fabric for an attractive result.

$45 includes umbrella frame, thread; we'll also provide waterproofing, pattern and instruction. You should complete about half of your project in the workshop and be able to complete your project at home with some simple hand stitching.

Too Cool T-shirt Quilt | 9:30 AM - 4:00 PM
Because your t-shirts tell your story, your quilt should be as unique and interesting as you and your tees. Each block is cut to fit the design on the t-shirt; any number of tees can be used; and no rows or columns. The entire quilt is made from you tees...no iron-on interfacing...so your quilt is soft, not stiff and heavy.

$70, includes copy of the book, "How to Make a Too Cool Style T-Shirt Quilt"
