I'm just soooooooooooooooo excited about the "Fellowship of the Flowers." It's like a block of the month but better! It's inspiring! It's a mystery every month! It's going to be so much fun! In fact, I'm going to start signups on December 27th!
What is the “Fellowship of the Flowers”?
- Companionship: we will be stitching companions for fifty weeks. Every Wednesday starting January 1, 2014 until December 17, 2014, you are invited to visit my blog for inspiring flower stitching ideas.
- A mutual sharing: we will share photos of our completed flowers and projects on Pinterest and Facebook .
- A group of people with the same interests: we will explore the world of Folk Art Fusion® and art quilting together. Not only will I teach you how to make each flower, you will receive complete instructions for 12 projects using your flowers. Project instructions will be emailed to you the last Wednesday of each month.
- An endowment for the support of a student or scholar doing advanced work: your fellowship fee of $35 entitles you to 50 weeks of inspiration and learning. Upon joining, you will receive 5 flower patterns, a bonus bee pattern and instructions on layering the pieces. In addition, every month for 12 months, you will receive a project using combinations of the 5 flower patterns and the bonus bee pattern. You are invited to share your finished projects, ask questions and be part of a worldwide group of friends. Your fellowship fee, which is less than 70¢ per week, allows me not only to continue designing Folk Art Fusion® projects for your enjoyment, but it also allows me to support rabbit rescues around the USA. For this the bunnies and I send our heartfelt thanks.
In addition, I will have wool felt
and pearl cotton kits available for purchase in my shop. This will also be a great way to use up scraps of fabric and little embellishments you may have laying around. Not to mention, you can be ahead of the game for gift giving next Christmas (I really need that part).
Signups will begin December 27th. This will be done through Craftsy only. There will be no printed patterns of the flowers, PDF only. Starting January 1st and every Wednesday for 50 weeks you will see a finished flower on my blog for inspiration on finishing your flower. However, the only way you get the instructions and the patterns is to join the Fellowship. The last Wednesday of the month I will show you a project using the flowers. All those who have joined the Fellowship will be emailed the complete instructions for making the project. You may join the Fellowship at any time, but it will end completely on December 17, 2014.
I am truly looking forward to sharing this 50 week adventure with you. Something happy, positive and creative to look forward to each week with friends.
