Class Title: Spring “Proddy” Flower Pins

Teacher Name: Nan Loncharich

Class Length: 3 Hours

Class Fee:  $30.00

Class Day/Time:  Sunday, 9:00 am to 12:00 noon

Class Description:

Students will learn how to process recycled wool clothing for use in flower making.  The “proddy” is a flower created in the late 1800’s – 1900’s by rug hookers as a way to use up short, narrow pieces of wool.  Students will cut strips, pull them through linen canvas, create a center, cut small petals and leaves. Then glue everything to a pin back.  Class is lively and relaxed with plenty of individual attention and support. Suitable for any needlework/ craft enthusiast with average skills. With Mother’s Day and Springtime just around the corner, this will make a perfect gift and you’ll have the skills to make another for yourself. A perfect embellishment for any sweater, coat or scarf.
