Seven Christmas Gifts…

Make your own felted and knitted Christmas gifts at Windrush Farm.

(2263 Chileno Valley Rd, Petaluma, CA 94952)

This year, make a plethora of Christmas gifts for
your loved ones. Hand-made and home-made
gifts are so much more meaningful than store
bought. They are easy on the pocket-book and
people will use them over and over again and
save them for years to come.

We like to take you on a journey of a variety of
techniques, from wet and dry (needle) felting to
sewing to knitting, using a variety of materials
(some re-used or re-purposed) to get ingenious
and wonderful gifts that are great for Christmas
or the year around.

You will go away with several finished projects,
such as a felted bead necklace and earrings,
scrunchies made from dyed sheep curls/locks and
several jewelry pins from felted beads and curls,
and more ideas than you will be able to realize.

Class is Sunday Oct. 24th 1 pm – 4:30 pm

Bring your own knitting needles, crochet
hook sewing needles, needle felting kit.
(Tea and cookies provided)

Class Fee:

Class Description:

You will begin on a knit project, either a
