 Class Description:  Join Ali in this fun and creative workshop where you will learn 6 different techniques --- ruching, needle felting, fabric bundling, standing wool, clipped loops, and pleated shirring. These techniques will be used to fill the spaces in this charming leaf "sampler".

All these techniques can be used to enhance your future rug hooking projects --- adding interest, dimension and texture.
