Prior to workshop students will need to submit a picture of the desired project they would like to work on by email to Kimberley@kimsupholstery.com.  I will advise on fabric yardages needed to complete your chosen project piece once it has been approved for the workshop.  I want students to choose a piece appropriate for the workshop so they can have a chance to complete the project during the 2-day session.  This will also make it fair to other students as well.
