A few months back, a customer came into the store and was enquiring about the upcoming classes. She told us she really wanted to attend our classes but she was just waiting for Rubyellen of Cakies to teach a Bloesem class. And Tah-dah! It is happening! Rubyellen will be teaching us how she creates these fabulous felt creations!

After the class, your mind will be spinning with all the fun creations you can make with your felt flowers. You will get several patterns to take home to keep working on your craft, ideas on where to look for more floral inspiration, and how to use your new skill to create flowers using other materials.
