Embroidered Pears

Sew, stuff, and embroider a festive autumn pear with fiber artists Alana Tibbets and Ana Sumner.  Students will be introduced to a variety of methods for creating texture with hand stitching and other embellishments. This is a two-part class. During the first hour, participants will hand sew a practice pear. The pattern for the pear and sewing needles will be provided. To make your pear, you will need the following:

            2 ounces of polyester fiberfill

            pins
