Gorgeous Garlands

Fall Session: Tuesday November 2

Winter Session: Tuesday February 22
6:30 to 9:30 ish

Elaine’s signature item!
It was while filming her TV Show “A Day in the Country” way back when, that Elaine learned how to make a garland by machine – kinda like a sewing machine – with a top & bobbin thread.

This inspired her to figure out how to do it by hand. It is now the number one feature for weddings – at the ceremony or best – at the head-table. It also looks great as a decorative for your home – fireplace, bannister or over a hutch.

Tonight you will learn how to make a variety of ropings, swags & garlands & you will make your own 10ft garland to take home. Check our Facebook page for an album dedicated to Garlands.

$295 includes all the foliage, materials, instruction & refreshments
