Bella Vista Mini Landscapes: This class is aimed at students interested in learning to use fabrics effectively for landscape quilts but who cannot devote the time for a larger complex sewn project. The landscapes in this class are small, simple and fused allowing more time to play with the creative use of fabrics while making a small wall-hanging measuring approximately 10x 12 or 14 x 20 which also makes them perfect for gifts. These mini-landscapes go together fast and it is possible for a confident student to get at least one done in class and also makes them easy and fun to recreate in different color schemes. The focus of the class will be on using fabrics creatively to get marvelous special effects. There are a variety of patterns (purchase required) to choose from. Skill Level: Beginner and up.

Van Gogh by Thread: This is an improvisational Hand Embroidery class. Students will work on wool or stabilized flannel to recreate a still life painting in all-over stitching like a tapestry. The stitches are basic, any stitcher with very rudimentary embroidery skills will be able to do them. Any subject matter would work but Still Life Paintings are particularly well suited to this approach. The embroidery is not meant to be an actual reproduction of a painting; rather the paint serves as the inspiration for a serendipitous exploration into stitchery.
