Cosmos Pillow

Taught by Leisa Firth

Class Description

In the Greek language, cosmos means orderly, beautiful, and ornamental. It has been considered as the flower of love. The nice fragrance and nice vibrant look of it exudes the attributes of peacefulness, wholeness, and modesty.

Brighten up your January with this cheerful pillow!   It’s a great project for the beginner or seasoned stitcher.  It comes together quickly so you won’t have to worry about another unfinished project!

I am really excited to spend some time during our class time sparking your creativity!  I have some hands on exercises we will do together as well as a darling challenge project you will have the opportunity to participate in if you choose to do so.  The challenge project will be unveiled at class.  I think you will love it and the process!

I am really looking forward to our time together getting to know each other as well as ourselves just a little bit better!

Finished pillow size approx. 20” x 14”

Required Materials

I’ll bring wool in all shapes, sizes, colors and textures for students to purchase.  Or you may bring your own collection for either of these fun projects!

  • Kit and Pattern for Pillow:  $20.00 (paid separately to instructor)

Bio

I started my business, Black Sheep Woolens, in 2003. It has been a fun adventure. It's like Christmas morning every time I open up the dryer and pull out an arm load of beautiful, warm wool! I am very happily married to the most wonderful man in the world and we have six beautiful, fascinating children and 4 adorable little grandchildren. We love time we can share together enjoying the beautiful world we live in.
