Forest Abstractions Sew-Along with Violet Craft & Sewtopia!

The Free-Wheeling Single Girl Sew-Along has been so much fun and we don't want it to end. That's why we've teamed up with Violet Craft to launch the Forest Abstractions Sew-Along!

The Forest Abstractions has been recolored and refreshed and is looking forward to strutting it's stuff. This is a foundation paper pieced pattern that finishes at 56" x 60".

Join us for the fun or event if you want to brush up on your paper piecing mojo.
