The class was a lot of fun. We had eight students. Thank you to everyone who came. The museum and I both appreciate your support.
I had planned to take photos, but it was such a busy action filled morning that I never managed to get out my camera!
On Saturday 12/5 (that’s 3 days from now) I am teaching a class at the New Milford, CT Historical Society Museum on Victorian Scrap Paper Ornaments. This class would be a bit elementary for those of you who have mastered spun cotton, but if you aren’t a spun cotton expert, are looking for something fun to do with older children, or have a friend who isn’t “crafty” then this would be the perfect class.
The class runs from 10:00 – 12:00. The cost is $30, which includes most of your materials, and all of the money goes to benefit the museum. If you’d like to read the class listing on the museum website, here is the link www.nmhistorical.org/eventsnews/index.htm .
Since time is so short, just call me at the museum (860-354-3069) to register and you can pay on Saturday when you come for the class. If I’m not in the office, please leave a message on the answering machine.
All you need to bring with you to class are paper scissors, fabric shears, fabritack glue, and any trims, tinsel, glitter, buttons, etc. that you have and would like to put on your ornaments. A tour of the museum’s current exhibit “300 Years of Christmas Traditions” is included in the class.
It should be a fun morning for a good cause. I hope to see some of you there!
