Good luck Vickie.  Maybe if you have enough people in your group you could ask her to come and teach.

Janice, I sure wish I had the luxury of having Hellen as an instructor. I know she's wonderful and very patient with her students. I am going to try it again soon.

Thank Vickie. It's sooo much easier to do with an instructor to show you the first time.

I love Hellen's faux leather book, even I could follow the instructions. This is very nice Janice!

FYI - I think we also need to acknowlege Sylvia Gaines of TX.  I think she is the first person to do this faux leatherwork and introduce it to the gourd world.  She also teaches this technique.
