CANCELLED – Make a Holiday Tree Ornament

December 10, 2023 @ 1:30 pm - 4:00 pm


Get into the creative holiday spirit with a crafting afternoon at The Huron County Museum! Craft your own fabric tree ornament as a gift or decoration. Celebrate traditional and sustainable methods of making holiday gifts and ornaments, rather than buying. Join us for a social afternoon of hand-stitching to create Christmas Tree Ornaments out of yo-yos.

Yo-yos are small circles of fabric that are gathered together to create a puckered circle. They are used in quilting, appliqué, toy making and decorating. Employing this old-fashioned tradition of reducing waste and repurposing fabric scraps is also a fun, social and relaxed way to practice or learn skills crafting with fabric.

No experience is necessary and all materials are supplied.

The workshop is open to adults and kids ages 12 and up: perfect for family time or an afternoon of creativity with friends. $13 + HST for adults, $8 + HST for students or museum members.  Register via Eventbrite or at the museum front desk. You can also call or email to save your spot (museum @ huroncounty.ca or 519-524-2686).

Jennifer Triemstra-Johnston will be teaching the workshop. Jennifer is a costume designer by trade and owns Pick a Posie Vintage in Blyth and also runs the Fashion Arts & Creative Textile Studio.
