Scrap Dancing


Scrap Dancing is a program of ideas to use up the bits and pieces left over from other projects, along with free patterns. Topics covered include scrap saving systems, color matching, small projects up to larger projects with many ideas for gift sewing, home decor and more, featuring my Scrap Dance pattern line. The program runs just over one hour. This program will primarily cover cotton quilting fabrics, small projects and improv ideas. In person includes a trunk show of my original Scrap Dance quilts.

How many scraps of material have you saved?  Do you have uneven pieces from cutting, partial yard leftovers, old clothes you can’t stand to give away because of the fabric or a pretty embroidery, bits and pieces of this and that?  Do you buy 4 yards of fabric when the pattern calls for 3?
“I’m going to use up all these pieces before I go buy anything else.”
“This year, I’m going to make all my holiday gifts.”
Have you ever said any or all of these things?
There is a way to use those scraps, but there are a few things you need to know.   Large pieces all the way down to 1-inch square can be successfully used given the right project. Scrap Dancing can show you how!
