Date: Friday, July 10 from 2-6pm
Instructor: Barb Boatman
Workshop Fee: $65 members / $75 non-members
Plus Supply Fee: $10
Class size: 5-10 participants

It's never too early to start working on your holiday greeting cards! Join this workshop and learn a quick 3-step process to turn discarded junk mail postcards into recycled seasonal fun. Participants will collage the front of postcards with mixed papers. Pine trees pre-cut from recycled aluminum soda cans will then be machine stitched over the collage. In step 3, participants complete each card by machine stitching a finishing paper to the back. Completed cards can be mailed without an envelope. All supplies provided, except your sewing machine, thread and needles. Complete suggested supply list will be sent after registration.
