Greener Grass Felt Christmas Stockings Workshop

Felt Christmas Stocking Workshop
Tuesday, November 30th
6 p.m. to 8:30 p.m.


I'm here to announce the first official Greener Grass Workshop and I'm so excited about it.  I'll be teaching on how to make sweet felt Christmas Stockings for your home...and it is SO much fun!

I've made two different pattern styles of stockings to choose from. The first is a traditional shaped stocking...very classy.


The second style is what I'm calling an "elf stocking." It's curvy and fun...almost cartoon like.


We'll be sewing with ecospun felt, which is a wonderful sturdy felt that is made from recycled plastic bottles. It has a great texture, is durable, and very easy to sew.

These stockings are just examples. I'll have a large selection felt in many different colors. I have lots of examples and ideas to match any decor style. You'll get to be creative and learn some basic sewing skills...using a pattern, machine stitching, and simple applique. This workshop is perfect for the beginner!


Handmade stockings are a wonderful way to celebrate the holidays. At this workshop, you'll have the opportunity to create something that will be special to your family and enjoyed for years to come. We'll sew and listen to Christmas music and sip on cider and cocoa...What a great way to get in the Christmas Spirit!


The cost of the workshop is $30. This includes supplies, material, pattern designs, and tutorial for you to make and take home 2 Christmas stockings.  If you would like to make more than 2 stockings, that's perfectly wonderful. Each extra stocking (after 2) will just be an additional $5.

Class will be filled on a first come, first serve basis. To reserve your spot and get further details, email me at mddark@yahoo.com

The workshop is open to anyone ages 12 and up. Class size is limited, so sign up soon!

This is going to be so much fun! I'll see you there!
