Instructor: Marcie McIntire
Up north, there's a saying that there's no bad weather, just the wrong clothes. Outfit yourself with the right sort of clothing to protect your body from the elements in this course, in which you will design a comfortable and warm pair of deerskin mittens to wear during the winter months. The mittens are ideal for daily wear, working outside or long winter adventures. You will decorate the mittens with bead embroidery using your own design. The basics of deerskin sewing will be taught as well as the sewing of a warm wool lining. Your materials fee includes deerskin, wool fabric, beads, needles and thread.
