Suggestions for finishing classes

We obviously want to make this blog as useful and relevant as possible, so firstly we need to know:

What finishing techniques would people be interested in learning?
Would anyone be interested in teaching a particular technique and if so, what?

If there’s enough interest in a particular technique, we’ll include it in the class schedule; if not, then perhaps we’ll try and partner up someone who wants to learn a technique with someone who already knows how to do it for some one-to-one tuition.

  1. I would be interested in learning so many things! I would love for Nicki to teach us the ruched ribbon.

    Karen and Anne, thank you so much for putting this absolutely fantastic blog together.

  2. The pinkeep, pillow technique and cube classes sound wonderful! I would like to make a mattress type pincushion – like one of the Indigo Rose pieces. Flat fold stand up pieces would be great as well as how to mount pieces for a boxtop, scissor pockets too.

    Thank you so much Karen and Anne, for the time you spent getting this together!

  3. I’d like to know if there’s an easy way to mitre the corners of the fabric surrounding a stitched piece, when making it into a pillow as in the Finishing School’s ‘fabric with stitched frame’. I have fudged this before, but if there’s a better way, I’d love to learn it.

  4. I’d love to know how to do the perpetual calendar that Karen made for the Bent Creek Snapper designs.

    Not that I’m sure I’ll ever be able to manage one myself. LOL
