Denise Harrington Pratt Button Etui and Scissors Fob Workshop 2022 Day 1
September 17 @ 9:00 am – 4:00 pm CDT
A two day finishing class via Zoom with Denise Harrington Pratt.
This constructed etui has been designed to hold necessary stitching supplies. It opens to reveal a needle page and a scissors keeper. The edges of the book act as a pinkeep. Buttons of the student’s choice are an integral part of the design areas. Buttons from the button jar, antique buttons, or purchased buttons may be used. The majority of the stitching is cross stitch over two. Additional stitches used are: cross stitch over one, reverse chain, and lacing the chain. One specialty stitch is also used in the design and students get to choose small pillow stitch, multiple rice, or Algerian eyelet. This class is designed to teach students finishing techniques. Students will do all the stitching for both the Button Etui and the Button Fob before class. Class time will be dedicated to constructing the etui and the fob, including mounting the stitched components, attaching the magnetic clasps, attaching the hinge, putting it all together, and finishing the ribbon edges. Students that come to class prepared should leave the second day class with the fob completed and an almost completed etui.
Class 2 will be on September 24.
Open to members only.
