We have space for 8 people (SPDG members only). We will be accepting enrollment on a first come first served basis. But don't worry if you don't get signed up in time, if we have enough interest we will offer the workshop again.
How to sign Up: Add a comment in the comments section below saying you'd like to attend.
Fee: $90 (this class fee includes tools and materials provided by the instructor). We are accepting check payments at the event.
Date and Time: July 11 from 10:00 am to 4:00 pm
Materials: The instructor will be supplying most of the items needed. She requests that attendees bring with them scissors, measuring tape, rubber gloves, dust mask and 2" to 4" C clamps if you have them. And if you'd like to bring your own fabric, Ana Lisa recommends white or pale colored natural fiber fabrics...light or medium weight works best. We will need a few extra irons and ironing boards, so if anyone would be willing to bring those from home please do.
We suggest wearing casual clothes you don't mind getting dirty. And bring a lunch and a snack so you don't get too hungry during the day.
For our members who won't be able to come to the workshop, Ana Lisa has recently published her own instructional video series. The information we'll be learning from her workshop and much more can be found in this DVD. She's offering SPDG members a $12 discount on this DVD.
