  • St Giles, 8271 52nd Street N. Pinellas Park, FL 33781

  • Registration is available through April 19th. Class size is limited to 12, so register yourself, and a guest if required, early to reserve your spot. See Event details for cancellation policy.


During this workshop Member Mary Ann Braithwaite will teach us how to make a variety of superb 3D ribbon flowers that can be used to embellish your quilts, embroidery, clothing or decor. 

Flowers you will learn to make include a Rose, made from two widths of ribbon stitched together, gathered and then couched in a spiral to fabric, a Daisy made using a loop stitch with silk ribbon and a French knot, and a Water Lily created from a variety of materials and techniques.

Mary Ann will supply a kit containing some of the necessary materials. This will include a variety of silk and other ribbons, needles and a selection of beads and buttons, all of which is included in the cost of your registration.

You will need to bring along the following supplies - 

A small or medium sized Embroidery Hoop (If you have more than one, please bring them all along so others can borrow one if they don't have one at home). Craft and even thrift stores can be great places to find these if you don't have one and want to get your own.

Sharp scissors to cut ribbon and embroidery thread

A pencil

Your chosen background fabric (A fat quarter will be more than adequate)

If you have beads, buttons or other decorative elements that you would like to include within your work please do bring those along.  Also, if you have any ribbon you would especially like to work with bring that along as well.

We will have use of the hall for the usual 5-hours so do bring along something to drink and for lunch - a refrigerator is available for our use.

As usual, this will be a fun group get-together to do what we all love doing - learning new quilting and sewing skills.

You are welcome to register and bring along a guest (same fee applies).
