Mary Anne's Floral Portrait Class
I have used my Embellisher for a couple of years and have mostly made small abstract designs. Mary Anne Griffin offered a class project which was much more realistic than intuitive and it was a great challenge for me. Using beautiful wools, velvets, and silks provided in our kit, we all set about "pounding" fabric. And what a racket! Embellishers are not quiet!

Mary Anne is such a good communicator and teacher that it was easy to follow her instructions to make the portrait. She even provided complete instructions, including photos on a cd that was part of our kit.
I made good progress on my Floral Portrait in class, but just got tired and pooped out. It was the last day of the retreat and I had partied too hard. (I wish!)
