LENTEN LETTER WORKSHOPS.
tuesday, feb. 28th from 6-8:30 & wed., march 7th from 6-8:30.
$10 per night, and all materials are included.
we’ll talk a little bit about the theology and spirituality surrounding the practice of letter-writing, and then we’ll get out the fabric scraps, sewing machines, etc. and create little works of art, sure to elicit smiles from recipients and postal workers alike!
no prior sewing experience is necessary. We’ll be learning/applying a technique that is foundational in quilting. Space is limited. Email me to sign up (themsrevolution(at)gmail(dot)com).
stay tuned for more info about “sew memphis,” as we will be called. the facebook page and web page are coming soon.
