From Pop to
Pincushion: Pop Cap Pincushions, A Quick and Easy Largesse
Do you have a desire to create largesse, but feel you
only possess basic sewing skills? If so, then this is the class for
you! Learn how to use scrap fabrics, remnant trim and a few basic
stitches to create attractive and useful largesse items that anyone
will love. This class is open to anyone age 8 and up who can thread
a needle without hitting an artery. You should be able to leave the
class with a completed, basic pincushion. If there is enough time,
we will work on embellishment.
Please bring scissors if you have them, as well as
any trim scraps you might like to incorporate. All other materials
will be provided, as well as a handout with photo tutorial and
examples of stitches used.
We will work on a “doodle cloth” to
introduce ten embroidery stitches with a variety of threads.
Depending on the experience of the students running, back stitch,
seed, satin and cross stitch will be explored. Stem or outline,
herringbone, buttonhole or blanket stitches and chain and couching
will be taught. These stitches can easily be elaborated in a
further class into the more familiar styles of different times and
Hoops are available to loan and cloth, needles and
threads will be supplied. Students may bring small scissors and

From the USA and south parts of the Valley: as
a suggestion to get to Hwy #7. The most straight forward way
is to take the Sumas Crossing. Continue straight onto Sumas Way.
Turn right onto Abbotsford Mission Hwy/BC-11 N (signs for Mission)
and follow the directions from the East.
Note that the above Weather and Map information is generated from the site address and can be easily confused. The weather will say if its for the branch or for the site. It will be for the site if the site can be found, but this again is not always the case, and if the site is some distance from the branch then the weather may be different.
