Weaving Workshops In the U.P.
Come join the fun!
We are planning a couple of workshops in the Hancock and Calumet this Spring and next Fall. In June we have Mary Sue Fenner returning for her Artist Jacket Workshop June 3-5, 2013. We have 5 or 6 interested already and we have room for a few more eager Sewers. You will be spending 3 days of creative sewing and experience a trunk show of Mary Sue's Latest garments. We had so much fun with Mary Sue last year that a number of Guild members want to have her back for another workshop. This workshop is open to the public contact Mary Brownell at email@example.com if you are interested! it is a fun time and you can make something from your very own handwoven yardage or a commercial fabric.At the same time enjoy a few days in the U.P. of Michigan..... away from the hustle and bustle of city life.
