The Fiber Arts Center of the Eastern Shore (FACES), located at 7 N. Fourth Street, Denton, is presenting the following classes:
- Wed. Oct. 2nd, 9am-4pm; Creative Sewing; Instructor – Sylvia Snyder; $45
Create wonderful fiber art pieces using decorative stitches and embellishments. In this 6 hours class we will start with solid color fabric that will be painted and changed more with every decorative machine-stitch and couching yarn stitch. We will finish with quilting, beading, and hand embroidery stitches. A separate kit fee, made payable to Sylvia, will be required on the day of the class.
- Wed. Nov. 6th, 9am-4pm; Woven Fabrics; Instructor – Sylvia Snyder; $45
Learn to create with the circular attachment. Easy and fast way to appliqué with the decorative stitches your sewing machine has. In this 6 hours class I will discuss different stabilizers and show you the easy way to build the circle blocks. Learn the many different possibilities the circle offers. This is a surprisingly fast, fun, and easy project with lots of wow-affects. A separate kit fee, made payable to Sylvia, will be required on the day of the class.
Sylvia Gabriela Snyder found her inspiration for fabric art when she learned of Japanese fabric works in a class she attended (1993). After Sylvia moved to the U.S. in 2000, she was intent on discovering her own style and expression through fabric art. After attending many exhibits, Sylvia entered an exhibit in 2006, winning her first ribbon at the Bernina Challenge. After this exhibit, Sylvia has had her work showcased in numerous exhibitions all over the nation, and has won many other awards.
