You’ve got a basket that you have been tossing your orts, scraps, and solitary buttons into. It holds all those little things that are just too delicious to throw away but couldn’t be used in the project you were working on at the time. It’s been sitting in your studio, or next to your comfy chair, just crying out to be used in some fashion. Well members, have we got something for you that just might fit the bill.
Meet Gnarls the little creature that’s been hiding your scissors on you, or misplacing your glasses, or stowed away the project you just had in your hands a moment ago. You know the one…the “I didn’t do it” one.
And here is his cousin, Gnarly. He’s just as mischievous. Our member Roberta McLaren will lead you through the process of creating your own little creature. Will he have blue eyes and orange hair, or green hair and orange eyes? Will he be sporting a patched vest or pink trousers? That will all be up to you.
Here’s your chance to put your creative design in play using that basket we referred to earlier, or gather up some ephemera that you think will work nicely to create your own Gnarls & Gnarly.
It’s all taking place at Roberta’s home on March 9, 2024 from 10:00 a.m. – 4:00 p.m. Refreshments will be provided throughout the day. Register by sending an email to Bonnie at [email protected]. The cost is $75 and includes a supply kit.
You will need to bring your sewing machine, sewing basket complete with scissors, threads, needles , pins, etc. and of course an enthusiastic imagination. If you have any special buttons, yarn, trims, etc. that you would like to use for embellishing your little creature, please bring them along.
We’ll look forward to see what personality you give your Gnarls & Gnarly.
