  • What to consider when weaving in ends & how to approach each project
  • A description & live demonstration of duplicate stitch
  • How to apply the technique to weaving in ends

We will also discuss helpful tips & have plenty of time for questions. Please feel free to bring in a project to work on after the demonstration.
