Fall workshops were off to a creeping and crawling start with the Caterpillar Stitch Binding taught by Rhiannon Alpers of Gazelle & Goat this past Saturday in Wishi Washi Studio.
|Rhiannon's class samples|
In the morning we learned the Hedi Kyle version of the Caterpillar Stitch binding:

and, in the afternoon we made Caterpillar stitches in the Keith Smith style - it was a lot trickier:

Making practice cards was key to learning these stitches and the Japanese hole punch was a handy tool to have in this class.
|don't look too close - I made a boo-boo towards the end|
As usual, everyone's work was spectacular.
Thanks to Rhiannon for teaching another great workshop in Wishi Washi Studio and we hope to have her back again in the Spring!
