Umbrella Class

Annie and I taught an umbrella class at Angelic's yesterday and as usual, all of the umbrellas turned out beautifully! We had a couple of late cancellations and ended up with just four students, but that didn't stop us from having a wonderfully creative time.   😊

Marlene has been patiently waiting for this class and when her husband got into a little tugging match with poison ivy, she almost had to cancel again. Fortunately, she was able to take him to urgent care and get some medicine for him and still have time to join the class. We found out during the class that Marlene chose to spend her 15th wedding anniversary making this umbrella, so we felt extra lucky to have her join us. Isn't this beautiful?

She had called me about this fabric quite a long time ago, questioning if she could use it. It is 97% cotton and 3% spandex. We figured we could, but suggested she bring a back up, just in case we ran into issues. I'm thrilled that she used it and love the results!

Nancy's butterfly fabric looks awesome next to this solid blue! She was worried because the blues don't match perfectly, but I'm happy to say that she was thrilled with the results. Just look at her smile!

Rosemary chose a wonderful Kaffe Fassett fabric and we all love the results! This picture does not do this umbrella justice. It really is BEAUTIFUL!

Terry, the shop owner was finally able to take this class. She has been trying since March to make this umbrella but scheduling conflicts, full classes, and illness always got in the way. We love her fabric choice and her finished umbrella. 

Everyone went home with umbrellas ready to waterproof and a hope for rain.

I love teaching these classes! Thanks Umbrella Joan for such a wonderful pattern and product. You rock!!
