What's new


July 24- Scherenschnitte  ('shear' en-schnit-tah)  The art of Paper Cutting.  It is a beautiful, versatile art form which has been enjoyed since the invention of paper.   It's one of the easiest and cheapest crafts to begin.  You use small scissors or an Exacto knife to make small cuts making a beautiful design on parchment paper or heavy paper.  The most difficult part is learning to pronounce the name.  I have many designs from holidays, flowers, and much more.  If you have a cutting mat for quilting, please bring that to supplement what I have.  Hope to see you at the class.
