BUTTERFLY GIRL with Lise-Anne Caron

March 26 and April 9,  9:30 - 11:30 a.m. and 1:00 - 3:00 p.m.


With this class, we welcome a new teacher at our guild. We don’t see Lise-Anne often, so we are very happy that she has agreed to come and teach this lovely stumpwork butterfly fairy from Australian designer Taetia McEwen.

The detached wings are made of silk, embellished with French knots stitched with metallic threads and then attached to the body with thread. You will use colour pencils on the body and basic embroidery stitches for the rest of the design. Basic knowledge of backstitch, French knots and satin stitch is required.

NOTE: Approximately one hour of pre-work is required to transfer the pattern to the fabric before the first class. There will also be approximately two hours of homework between the first and second week of class. Also note that you will be in class both morning and afternoon each day.

Your kit will include the pattern as well as all required fabric and threads. You will receive the pattern and fabric the week prior to class to allow you to do the pre-work.

You will need to bring your basic sewing kit and a large hoop (14”), stretcher bars or roller frame as the piece is quite large. You will also need a blue or green gel pen and flesh-coloured Prismacolor style pencils. Lise-Anne will bring hers to class for you to borrow if you don’t have them.

Registration deadline is February 13 to allow Lise-Anne time to get the supplies and put together the kits.

FELT PIN CUSHION with Diana Kelly

April 2 and 23, 1:00 - 3:00 p.m.


 This is an encore presentation of the class held this past October - back by popular request.

At the 2018 EAC seminar in Charlottetown, participants received materials and instructions to make this cute felt pin cushion that is divided into eight sections with a rose or daisy in each section. Diana has stitched a sample of both versions and will teach you how to do the bullion, lazy daisy, French knot and buttonhole stitches. You will then choose which design you want to use on your pin cushion. A decorative bead will be placed in the top centre with a button on the bottom.

Your kit will include felt, choice of floss, stuffing, beads and buttons, sewing thread and a straw needle for the bullions. Diana will bring her white marking pencil that you can borrow in class – perfect for marking on dark colours.

You will need to bring your basic sewing kit including scissors to cut felt, sharp needles (e.g. #7 crewel), pencil for tracing, straight pins and a small ruler. If you have decorative beads you would like to use or share, bring them to class.
