Summer Stuff

 He T3 fans! It's Hannah writing to you today. I've returned home for the summer and am working at The Tin Thimble. I am so excited about everything that's coming up. We're hosting our first ever Fashion Week (July 12th-17th for those of you who are local and want to come check it out), and our 2nd annual fashion show will be held Sunday, July 17th. More details coming soon. I am so lucky that I love my job and I wake up before work ready and excited to go. I've planned Home Ec classes for June and July and am really looking forward to teaching them. In June the students will be making a pillowcase, tote bag, wallet and an adorable party garland.

In July, they'll be learning how to make coasters, an apron, appliqued hand towels and a kitchen rug. It's SO nice to be back at work and feeling useful again, haha. Come in and check out the shop! We just got  a TON of vintage fabrics out on the shelves, the class schedule is full and summer projects are calling.

Day 1 with Nicola

Nicola's "Felted Accessories" class yesterday was a great success!  Four girls decided to make felted purses and Lisa decided to make a wet felted scarf with buttons and beads felted right in.  All are coming along beautifully!  I also got to create yesterday - a nuno felted weskit - more to come on that process.  And mom made nuno felted curtains for the classroom - more to come on that as well.  Until later!

And the felting craziness has begun!

Nicola Brown of Clasheen Ireland arrived yesterday and she and mom are already in the workshop felting away!  Nicola is working on a Butterfly Shawl and Mom is making a jacket inspired by one that Nicola brought with her for the trip.
