Workshop participants will complete a group of samples based on functional/structural details as well as decorative/surface design elements. Attendees will learn:

Participants will leave the workshop with a group of samples of each technique. The kit fee is incorporated in the Registration fee and includes all fabrics, trims, stabilizer, and batting needed to complete the samples.
