Wool Quillie Christmas Tree

 

In this class, we will start you on a road to making your own “quillie tree”. The quillies are formed by rolling two contrasting colored strips of wool and securing them. You will learn how to make the quillies and attach them to the tree. A kit will be provided with a majority of what you need to get started, including the tree form, glass head pins and materials to form the base. You may purchase specially selected wool swatches or provide/bring your own. We highly encourage you to raid your stash to make your tree. Any color combinations of wools can be used. Note:  Due to lack of time, the tree form in your kit will come covered with fabric. You will get instructions on how to cover the cone should you wish to make more trees outside of class. At time of sign up you will need to specify if you will make a light or dark tree. 
 

Tree Topper: The needle felted cardinal tree topper is not covered in this class, but is offered as a separate class should you wish to make the cardinal. In this class we will cover other tree topper options, or you may sign up for an upcoming needle felting class. See below for cardinal class.

COVID-19: We are limiting this class to 6 people due to needing a lot of space to spread out with all your materials and social distancing. Masks are required at all times in the store. Please sign up only if you are comfortable with these circumstances. All surfaces are actively cleaned.

  • Teacher fee: $35 cash (preferred) or check, paid directly to teacher on day of class

  • Materials fee: $9 payable to Camp Wool on day of class

To Sign Up

Please call the store to sign up on a first come first served basis. Classes limited to six. At sign-up you will need to let us know whether you want a light or dark covering on your cone. If you're making a tree similar to sample you will want a dark covering. If you want to make say a mix of whites or neutral wools, you will want a light colored cover. 

Materials: We don’t know exactly how much wool you will need as it is made with #8 cut wool strips. Bring wool already cut (#8 cut) from your noodle stash and/or bring wool fabric that you can cut during class into #8 cut strips. Cutters will be made available for you to cut your strips! A variety of wools including textures will make for an interesting tree! No two will be alike!! Note:  if you like the colors in the sample tree we will have wool stripettes available of those colors available for purchase and of course you will have access to all the wool here at the store. 

Additional Items to bring to class: #10 or #11 milliner needles (available for $2 at Camp Wool), thimble, sharp scissors, tacky glue (available for $3 at Camp Wool), sewing thread to match your wools

Needle Felted Snowman

 

Attention all Snowman Lovers!

 

Join us at Camp Wool for another wonderful needle felting workshop.  This time, we will be making a cute little snowman, approximately 8 inches tall, and each one will be donning earmuffs and a wool scarf (with wool from Camp Wool). Felting is an easy craft that involves two simple tools - a special felting needle and a foam pad - and then just a small amount of wool. Our workshops are fun and relaxing!  Why not bring a friend and create one of these little guys as a gift or just to decorate your mantel?

Bring a Buddy or One-To-One Primitive Rug Hooking Class

1-2 people, by appointment only

 

Teacher: LeAnn Hodgson – Camp Wool

 

I will help you get started (or restarted) into the world of rug hooking in a 1 to 1 format. This one time class allows us to move at a good pace and cover all the basics of rug hooking. At the end of the session you will be able to rug hook using basic skills and techniques that will allow you to finish your projects and beyond! 

Note: Free follow up visits accommodated to finish your rug including instruction on how to finish your rug.

 

What do I get to hook and what is the cost?

You get to choose your own project! Generally I recommend something modest in size say 14”/15”’s round or square but that will be up to you. We have many to choose from! If you are restarting you are certainly welcome to bring what you have started. The cost will vary based on the project. You will pay for the pattern which is individually priced plus the wool which we will pick out together based on the colors YOU like.

 

Teacher fee is $60 for one person and $100 for two people (split between 2 people or $50 per person).

Hoops are $29 (subject to change) and hook prices vary greatly from $12 up to $75. Bottom line price is dependent on many variables as noted but you should budget around $175 - $200. 

Note: A $60 deposit towards cost of class is required at the time we pick out your project.

How long is the class, what do I need to bring to class and how do I make an appointment?

You should budget 3-4 hours for class for 1 person and slightly longer for two. You will need to bring sharp scissors and if applicable any rug hooking equipment you may already own. I schedule this class by appointment and days of the week that I can offer do change based on staff scheduling. Generally I can teach Mondays, Wednesdays and Thursdays during the day. Call or stop by the store to schedule.
