Among the quilts, lectures, shopping, shopping, shopping ... were workshops scheduled each day. Called Make it University!™ Chicago 2010 We tried our hand at One-of-a Kind Needlecase taught by Kristen Rodriguez Fiber on a Whim post from her blog My kit theme was PLAYNeedlecase Front Inside our kits were a cloth for texture, bits of scrapbook papers, bits of paper to embellish (ie ticket, map, music, dictionary page), button, and fiber (+needle) We received instructions for placing our paper pieces on the needlebook cover having the paper pieces stick on the fabric using a product called Misty Fuse we embellished with perle cotton Final touches: sewing on the button, a tie, and the pages inside Whole Needlecase (outside) Marjorie took a different class, Kelli Perkins - cartoon fabric paper collage pins see her post: Quilt Show; Oh we had fun!
