The Tinsmith’s Wife Fall Happenings Pt. 1

Fall Arrives

What better time is there to create with your hands then Fall.  There are so many wonderful reasons to get out and about – and as many to stay inside the house with a cup of tea and make.

As I have not sent out a newsletter in a bit – I am going to focus this one on the reasons to come out for a visit to Comfort….and the next newsletter that will follow will focus on all the creations you can make!  So get your calendar ready to read on…

The Tinsmith’s Wife Fall Happenings

Introduction to Kumihimo Braid Making

On Wednesday, September 11th from 1 – 4 pm, we are having our first kumihimo braid making class.   Charlotte is teaching us, and she will have us making braid that can be used for a beautiful pendant, a drawstring on a bag, or a cording on a finished needlework piece.   There is one spot left – is it for you?

Local Needlepoint Shop Day

Saturday, September 21st (all day) we are celebrating needlepoint and needlepointers.   We will have a fresh crop of goodies from the needlepoint market – and a party atmosphere!   Several of our great stitchers are bringing the needlework that they are most proud of to show others how awesome needlepoint is.

Introduction to Punch Needle Embroidery

I do love punch needle – it is the one craft I do that does not require counting….and it is feels like you are coloring with fiber.

Join us on Friday, September 27th form 1- 4 pm for an introduction to punch needle embroidery.   You will be surprised how quickly you can learn a new craft and have a great finished project for Fall!
