CANCELLED May 22, 2020 Workshop ~ Dianne Kane “It’s A Beautiful Day In My Neighborhood”

Instructor: Dianne Kane
Date: Friday, May 22
Time: 9:00am – 4:00pm
Location: TBD
Cost: $40

Wouldn’t it be nice to create your own neighborhood? It could be funky, colorful, sophisticated, wonky, architectural, or whimsical. Mmm . . . doesn’t that sound like fun? Use your fabrics to create houses with varying shapes, colors, and designs.

We’ll spend the first day and a half building our houses; then spend the last few hours combining your creations to create your neighborhood, balancing color, design, and dimension.

If you want to finish a top, consider making a table runner or wall hanging with just 3-4 houses.
