Session 1: Wednesday, December 13, 2017, 6 – 9p **SOLD OUT (contact me if still interested just in case I might be able to add)
Ages: Grown-Ups (who are kids at heart!)
Sign up Below!
My mom loves to gift ornaments. She gives them often to celebrate a couple’s wedding or baby’s arrival. Growing up, she always gave me an ornament for Christmas that had something to do with my year: a Snow White dress for the year she took me to DisneyWorld, an OU letter jacket for the year I started college, a bride and groom for the year I got married, etc. I love these treasures so much and look forward to pulling them out every year and recalling each story as we hang them on the tree.
When I got married I began giving my own symbolic ornaments to my husband each year representing things such as our honeymoon and our new home. When my daughter came along, I knew that I wanted to start the ornament collection for her, as well, so I started hand-stitching funky little felt and fabric ornaments that showcase something that she began, achieved, or did that year. These are in no way perfectly executed by any stretch of the imagination, as I am not a traditional seamstress or designer, but they are symbolic and full of love, and a gift from me to her, and that’s all that really matters to me.
This year, I wanted to offer a little class in case anyone wants to join me in making a meaningful ornament for yourself or to give someone special in your own life. During the evening, I will begin by showing some examples and a variety of materials you can choose from, and then be available to offer any design and implementation help (and plenty of encouragement) to get you started on your own creations! There will be an additional little holiday side-project for you to make, as well, to offer you a break from stitching;)
This will be the first time I have ever offered a class to grown-ups so it will be an adventure… Especially since its BYOB!
Depending on interest, this class will be offered either in my studio (located in the Carriage House directly behind the Tulsa Garden center at 2435 s. Peoria ave) or in a larger room in The Tulsa Garden Center. I will supply some small snacks and water but you are encouraged to BYOB and anything else you might like.
Class sign-up can be found below. If you are interested in a private party class instead, please feel free to contact me and we can discuss.
Hope to see you there, but if not, I want to take this opportunity to wish you and your family the happiest of holidays yet to be had! xo
