Now on to the next Retreat May 1, 2, 3, 2015. Saturday and Sunday is the Fan Etui shown open and closed.
Journey with us through the streets of Paris in 1920 where a seamstress carried her sewing tools pocketed in a beautiful fabric fan. Our Etui is made of velvet and brocade and is embellished with a beaded motif. Inside are the pockets for your scissors and other precious tools. One pocket is made using a vintage glove. We will pleat ruffles to trim the fan and add metallic trim, rhinestone necklace and pins as well as a tassel to create an heirloom.
Friday, May 1, 2015 will be a $25 workday (fun-day) at the Retreat location, Paradise Park in Santa Cruz, California.
It will afford you the opportunity to work on a project with Roxanne to answer any questions you might have.
