Class Description: This is a two day class. In the first class students will be introduced to the tools and techniques used for the double stitch to create “rings,” and then to connect the rings. In the second class students will learn the next step, which is to create “chains,” and then to incorporate rings and chains, and how to finish the project. There will be a few color options available. Once you have completed your flower, you can turn it into a gift or stitch it onto a card for Mother’s day or for another special person in your life!
