Making 'Memories Baskets'

flights-of-fantasy - making a Memories Basket


Use your craft stash or unwanted clothes/saved little girls' dresses/husbands ties(!) to make a coiled fabric Memories Basket - much more useful!
In the morning you will learn how to prepare fabrics and form a small basket using hand-sewing techniques.
In the afternoon you can continue with your hand-stitching or learn how to form a basket with your sewing machine - quicker but less flexible for the design.
You will need to bring a sewing machine and your own fabrics that hold memories for you. A list of useful additional sewing items will be sent on booking.

Cancellation and a full refund can be obtained up to 2 weeks before the course starts. Start dates may be amended on request.

What's included in the price?

Special cord to form your baskets
Tuition to guide you through the learning process
Fabrics will be available at extra cost if you do not bring your own

Lucinda Yelland - - #37473

This was a lovely workshop. Nancy was extremely flexible when I needed to change the date because of a storm. Nancy was an excellent teacher, demonstrating, encouraging and helpful throughout the day. I had a great time and came away with a small handstitched dish, and a bigger machine-stitched bowl.

Response from flights-of-fantasy:

You were great company Lucinda - glad we were able to re-organise so easily! Enjoy your basket-making activities.....
