”The minute I heard my first love story I started looking for you, not knowing how blind that was. Lovers don't finally meet somewhere. They're in each other all along.” Jalal Ad-Din Rumi
Hopeless romantic? This project is perfect for you! A pocket in a hand made bag holds love letters that are bundled together with ribbon. Open the drawstring bag to reveal a special book made to hold romantic notations and tokens of endearment. As you unfold the layers of stitched love interconnected envelopes and pockets, a love story unfurls. Inside you will create, fluffy lavender filled hearts with terms of endearment sewn onto them, tokens and baubles to attached as a reminder of the beauty, grace and truth in love.
We will provide most of the supplies and a beautiful lunch to spend with Ruth Rae and your new friends.
Bring with you:
Vintage lace, doilies and tattings
We will have vintage style buttons and trim but if you have special pieces you want to use, feel free to bring them to make your project even more special!
