August 2015

August update from THE HEN HOUSE of Charlotte…..

We have a few classes on the schedule

*Learn basic quilt piecing. Please call or stop into the shop to sign up & for details.

*Beginning Inkle Weaving – September 19th 10 – 12 $45.
The small loom with the funny name is great for weaving belts, guitar straps, handles for tote bags, hatbands – even jewelry and wall hangings. Sewing bands together opens up still more possibilities. This beginning workshop covers selecting yarns; selecting, warping and weaving on an inkle loom; books; and project possibilities. A floor model-type inkle loom and yarn will be provided. Participants should bring with them: scissors capable of cutting yarn and note-taking materials.

*Traditional Rug Hooking with Wendy Hoard – Starting late September.
Call or email the Hen House for details.

* Stitch by Hand with Debby Kinney
This class meets 2nd and 4th Tuesdays. Call the Hen House for details and to sign up.

* Machine Quilting on your machine –

* Art Quilts – Use geometric shapes to design and make your own original fabric art.
