Local Classes for December 2019

I have just added one more class to my schedule for December 2019! So fun!

These classes are local to the Lewis County, Washington area, to be held at Ewe and I on N. Market St., in beautiful, historic downtown Chehalis, Washington.  Sign up online, or stop by their store, whichever is more convenient for you. Drop-ins are also welcome, and payment can be made day of class.

I'll be offering four classes for the festive holiday (and last) month of 2019. I am looking forward to all the laughs, stabbing, and hot mocha breves! And seeing everyone there!

Fri., 12/6/19  Wool Needle Felt Painting--Starry Night Nativity Silhouette (2D wool-painting)
Sat., 12/7/19 Dimensional Needle Felt Christmas Ornaments (2D ornaments in bamboo hoops, with a 3D twist)  
Fri., 12/13/19 Felted Snowscene Wreath (a mash-up of 2D and 3D needle felting)
