We held our "Quilt Patterns in Clay" class in the morning for the Heart N'Sole Quilts shop. Everyone in the class made three quilted designs which were each mounted on a snap so they could wear them after as an interchangeable brooch or necklace.

Heart N'Sole Quilts is located in a really quaint 100+ year old vintage home. They are in the process of repainting and I love the yellow color!

In the afternoon, we held our "Buttons Make & Take" class for Lynden Tree Yarns. Everyone was given a block of clay and a huge selection of textures, shape cutters and mica powders to create lots of buttons. Some made pendants or charms as well and everyone was oooing and aaahing over all the pretty colors that were mixed up and applied to the various designs they created.
This is Brook who is only 10 but our prize pupil in the class! The buttons and charms she made turned out so well and she was so good with her color and design choices I think she will be an up and coming polymer artist some day.
It was a full but fun day with lots of activity. We left more buttons and accessories with Lynn at her store and she now has a wide range of shawl pins and sticks with a snap base and decorative snaps for interchanging.
