Come to play at The Masquerade! This Antique Playground workshop will give you the chance to sit down at a treadle machine, or hand crank a number of “portable” antiques.
Step back into history and have fun “playing” on these well oiled machines – you’ll only need some basic sewing skills to enjoy this workshop! We’ll have a great Floppy Ear Bunny project kit with different color ways to choose from for an additional $20 cash in class. Everyone will have the chance to try out each machine – working on a piece of their project at a time – with detailed instructions from our expert. Make your very own Floppy Bunny, to celebrate the spring!
If you want to bring your own project – that’s OK, too! If you have a big stash of fabric you want to dig into – but you like the Floppy Bunny we are making – we’ll let you use our free Floppy Bunny pattern available as a PDF download when you purchase a seat in this class. When not purchasing a kit, you’ll need to come with your pieces all cut and ready to sew.
So come enjoy an afternoon with us – we’ll provide the snacks – you can bring your own beverage; and we’ll all have a great time.
When you purchase a seat in the class, you will be able to download a “supply list” that will give details about the Floppy Bunny project we’ll be working on and the supplies you’ll need to make them with your own fabric. You will also be able to download the actual pattern pieces. If you are using your own fabric, you’ll be expected to come to class with all the pieces cut out ahead of time. We will need the entire 6 hours to piece the bunny together!
