This new take on Jackie's popular fan features a silk gauze design and scrim edn staves in the form of a Pansy or Forget-me-nots. The colorway for the Pansy Fan is intended to match that of A Tisket-A Tasket so you can add another lovely piece to your box.
You may sign-up for either the Pansy or Forget-me-not design and purchase the other kit from Jackie. The form is the same for both of them so you can work on either in class.
The fan is worked on silk gauze with silk threads. We'll post more photos as Jackie completes both designs.
Complete kit will includes all materials needed to stitch and
complete the project as described and the scrim (not ivory based). Instructions will included colored
charts, diagrams and step by step photo instructions.
Sign-up Deadline: March 1, 2018
Please note: This class is only available to those who attend in person. Per Jackie's requirements we cannot send kits to students who do not show up for class.
You should bring to class any magnification you need along with you as well as the usual class stitching supplies (scissors, extra needles, pen or pencil, note paper, highlighters, etc.).
