Crazy Piecing 101

This class will guide you into a part of history where every precious snip of fabric, lace, and trim were important.

The end result is a ravishing display of the crazy pieced square that can be turned into a pillow, wall hanging or if you are more a quilt.

I recommend taking BEBE: Embroidered with Bead Embellishment after this class to learn traditional hand embroidery with bead embellishment that will give your project an heirloom finish.
