This class scheduled to begin on July 26th, 2013
This is a very traditional project, with a contemporary flare. The heart shaped etui and base of the pincushion are both pieced with a version of the Log Cabin technique. The pieced sections are embellished with traditional embroidery stitches using two different types of thread, perle cotton #8 and 6-ply stranded floss. These make an excellent gift for any sewer!
