Event Details

Appropriate level: Beginner/Intermediate

Michelle May, also known as “The Crazy Bunny Lady,” created Folk Art Fusion, a whimsical expression of fusing folk art applique and embroidery with quilting. Michelle’s Play Dates projects are so much fun they won’t end up in your UFO pile! She’ll share her signature “reverse wool applique” technique and loads of embellishment ideas. You’ll learn creative ways to incorporate her Folk Art Fusion in postcards, table runners, pillows and quilts.

Each student will leave with her own charming Beekeeper Pin Cushion. Michelle’s also teaching this class at Quilt Festival in Houston!

Kit fee:  $35.00 collected in class. Kit includes blended wool felt, three flower patterns, Valdani pearl cotton threads, needles and embellishments. Extra fabric, threads, supplies, kits and patterns available for purchase during class.
