Smocking is an embroidery technique that functionally binds and decoratively embelishes pleats. This gathering of the fabric can be functional shaping or purely decorative.

In the class, we will be making 3.5″ heart-shaped sachets. They can be plain stuffed pillows or filled with a mixture of polyfil and potpouri as scent sachets. We will discuss various methods of pleating the fabric in preparation for the embroidery, but the class will focus on the stitching techniques and tips for finishing. Due to time constraints, the fabric will be pre-gathered.

****This is a pilot class so it’s half price. Future classes will be full price.

There will be a fee of $4.96 for members.. There will be a maximum of 4 spots of this class, and a minimum of 2 tickets must be sold. If the class minimum is not met 48 hours prior to class start time, the class we be canceled and all tickets will be refunded.
