WORKSHOP DESCRIPTION - Alabama Chanin stitching is a fabric embellishment technique done entirely by hand.  This workshop is a leisurely exploration of the joys of "slow Sewing" - not a machine in sight! 

Participants will begin by practicing 4 basic stitches using embroidery cotton.  They will also learn how to incorporate beading when using these 4 stitches.

The next step will be learning how to stencil fabric using permanent markers and fabric pain.

Participants will then build a folder of samples - quilting, various applique techniques, reverse applique and negative reverse applique.

Lastly, participants will explore the addition of sequins and beads to a stitched design.
