Workshop at Fabric Fanatic

Another longggggggg delay post on my last workshop at Fabric Fanatic. Having a support from crafter friend to host my workshop, just something that I am so grateful of. Kelly from Fabric Fanatic used to be my student like long time ago. She was an engineer that decided selling craft material especially fabric is much ideal job than working 9-7. So this time I held a 3 days workshop at her wonderful place.
