Join us on August 8, 2015 for a special day in the studio with Sharon Smith from Off the Hook Rugs and create your own table-top Fiber Bog…

This class is intended to be a light-hearted & fun day that will stimulate your creative energy. As we create our hooked & needle felted bogs, Sharon will help us explore the use of alternative and found materials such as shells, dried weeds, textured yarns, Sari silks, bits of fabric & roving, lace… let your imagination run wild as you collect your materials!

Materials Are Included with this class but Sharon encourages class participants to gather their own inspirational materials as well.

Our wool kits* for our appliqué designs are created especially for each design and are carefully prepared with ample wool to complete your project. The wools in the kit will generally not be the same wools used to stitch the original and are intended to give a look similar to, but not the same as, the original. Keep in mind that the photograph accompanying the pattern is meant as a guide only; your piece will be uniquely your own.


* Please note: Unless noted otherwise in the product description, our kits do not include threads, non-wool fabrics called for in the design, buttons, or other non-wool items.
