Welcome to a class on creating a stunning pin instructed by
Kimberly Crum
for a "Dragonfly" Pin Design

Our On Line Class this month is taught by Kimberly Crum one of our site's first featured gallery artists. (Click here for our previous gallery feature on Kimberly and her unique designs.) Kimberly Crum Designs' project a deep sense of color and texture, each piece being artistic and innovative. Her designs range from wearable art pins to tassels, pillows, box top inserts and framed pieces. Teaching is something Kimberly thoroughly enjoys and her classes are geared to impart her enthusiasm for needle and thread, banishing any dread of it! Her fervent hope is that all her students leave her class invigorated and inspired.

Using a combination of Caron Collection threads, the elusive Dragonfly is immortalized in this design. With wings of Rachel and a sparkley body of Antica, it is Kimberly's wish that her rendition will enchant you and be brought to life in your own handiwork.
