Rachel grew up surrounded by women who created. Her mother, Melody's sister is a talented artist, her grandmother loved to sew and quilt, and Melody is proficient in a number of hand-crafts both fiber and bead related, but she also sewed clothing for me from the time I was born until well into high school.

One of my earliest memories was how protective she was of her scissors.

We all knew exactly how much trouble we would be in if we used her fabric scissors for anything other than cutting fabric!

In Greek mythology, Soteria is the goddess or spirit of safety and salvation, deliverance, and preservation from harm. This sweet scissor case is lined with Ultrasuede and backed with cork and will give your precious scissors a nice comfy home to call their own.

This class is meant to allow each student to embellish the front pocket of the 4"-5" scissor case in whatever manner they wish. Custom made Galaxy (Melody) and PaintSkin (Rachel) cabochons are included in the kit for the focal and accents, choose between a flower (pictured), heart or round.

The directions will detail the bead embroidery leaf motif used in the example.
The kit will also include - cork backing, Ultra suede lining, Batik covered beading foundation, a metal ring (for a bail), size 15° and 11° seed beads.
