Carolyn Snyder's... "Crazy Clutch"... Class...

    Carolyn Snyder is the owner of "Cricket Street Stitches" and Cricket Street Wool" in Garden City, Kansas.
 She has her own line of wool applique patterns and for this class you will be making a sweet little "Crazy Clutch". You will use bits and pieces of wool,muslin,batting and pearl cotton to create your clutch. This is going to be a great class to learn what to do with all leftover wool we have.Or if you have someone coming with you to the Hook-In  that is not a hooker.
