Gourd with a Pine Needle Rim
Instructor: Jan Knutson
In this class we will create a pine needle border stitched around the rim of a gourd to complement its natural shape and color.
First we will enhance the gourd bowl with a wax polish rub and then stitch long-leaf pine needles around the rim for a stunning accent.
Instructor will provide a gourd bowl cut, cleaned and pre-drilled, long-leaf pine needles, and a tapestry needle with waxed linen or sinew for stitching.
There will also be provided a variety of “found objects” and small beads to further accent your gourd rim.

Fall Equinox Wander & Storytelling
Hike through the park and down the hill as night falls on the eve of the fall equinox.
The nearly-full moon will rise shortly after sunset to light our way. At the bottom of the hill we will enjoy a campfire, treats, storytelling, and stargazing.
Soon the nights will turn cold, so let’s enjoy fall while she lasts.
