What you'll learn in this sewing class:

Using wool and needle felting techniques, create a 6-inch-tall pumpkin complete with lifelike ridges, tendrils, and a stem. The real surprise is the spices we tuck inside—apple mulling spices make it sweet-smelling all season long. Perfect for the novice crafter, needle felting is an easy-to-learn technique that is both creative and relaxing. Come join us to try this new craft.
