Part of Sunday Fun Days at The Farm
Philadelphia Guild of Handweavers member Sheryl Kessler will be teaching a free workshop at Awbury Arboretum starting promptly at 1 pm and ending at 4 pm.
You can bring your own supplies or purchase a kit from Sheryl for $25. The kit contents are below. If you bring your own supplies, they should be the same items as are in the kit although your own needle should be a #20 or #22 sharp (not rounded point) and a needle with a smaller eye (the smallest eye to fit your thread is the easiest to use). Any small scissors will do.
Contents of Getting Started with Fabric Collage kit: 2 embroidery needles: 1 Bohin #20 or #22 & 1 Clover Gold eye needle; 10 straight pins; and 1 Snips; Kit contains the following wound onto a card (you may bring a spool of thread and floss); Length of matching sewing thread; 3 Matching colors of 6-strand floss; 1 Matching color of perle embroidery thread; Backing fabric (5 x 5 inches); Batting (5 x 5 inches) curated Fabric Scraps. Good amount for lots of choices.
Zine: Getting Started with Fabric Collage (an instructional booklet can be purchased separately for $3.50 if you bring your own supplies).
Sheryl Kessler has a BFA in Fashion Design from Philadelphia University and has had a textile practice since 1982. Her practice has included knitting (hand & machine), crochet, quilting, and (since 2016) fabric collage and embroidery.
