Monday 4:00pm – Thursday 11:30am Do you love sewing, sewing and more sewing...of all sorts and kinds...and especially Vintage, Classic and Contemporary, depending on your mood? If so, then this curriculum has been created just for you. Originally offered as a full, week-long retreat, it has now been streamlined for you to complete in just a few days, and at a very special price. AND, it’s right before Original Sewing & Quilt Expo, so you can stay on and have even more fun once you’ve received your Teacher Licensing Certificate!
Vintage, Classic and Contemporary is a Martha Pullen Teacher Licensing curriculum filled with a wonderful assortment of projects: 31 in all, in a wide variety of styles and designs. Together, they form a collection of sweet, cute, cuddly, charming, neat, sassy, timeless, traditional, beautiful and/or elegant items for you to enjoy making, giving, selling or teaching. All 31 projects are beautifully illustrated, with detailed instructions. You will also receive complete kits to make over a dozen of the most popular of the projects. These projects allow you to learn a dizzying array of techniques – the ones needed to become a Martha Pullen Licensed Teacher, of course, but also the ones you’ll use over and over again in your sewing life.
This EXPRESS retreat experience – good food, excellent company, wonderful teachers and some great surprises – brings together sewing projects that showcase the vintage style we so enjoy, builds upon classic and timeless themes we rely on and captivates us with fresh, contemporary looks. What could be better?!
Join us, and acquire skills in working with lace and entredeux, spaghetti bias, folded bias, several versatile quilting techniques (echo, channel and stippling), incorporate tucks of all kinds, ribbons, decorative stitches, bobbin work, Madeira applique, piping, trapunto, fringe, buttons of all shapes and sizes, crazy patch, traditional applique and much, much more! Plus, serging techniques. Really, it’s more skill-building and fun than you can imagine.
With nationally and internationally recognized educators Kathy McMakin, Connie Palmer and Alicia Welcher, it’s a once-in-a-lifetime experience to get it all in this specially priced, streamlined course. Don’t miss it, there is only one Licensing Express this year and this is it!
