Z Akhmetova

Working from a favorite sketch or design, see how one simple modular shape can turn into an entire menagerie of adorable stuffed plushies! By using a single basic template, two pieces of fabric, batting or stuffing, thread, and notions such as buttons, ribbon, or yarn–explore infinite possibilities to invent your own personalized, totally unique collection of wonders. Perfect for beginners, students will learn simple whip or blankets stitches and hand applique–so no previous sewing experience is required! Experienced sewists welcome to come and play. With intuition and fun as your guides, join us for an exercise in creativity and making–DIY style–and walk away with enough expertise to share this textile project with family, students, or community.
