We have become very intrigued, possibly obsessed, with
embellishments. Embellishment is just about anything, other than thread, that you can put on a canvas. Beads and sequins are often used embellishments, but there is so much else you can use, including ribbons, gimp, and wire lace as well as found items.
So now that we have more embellishments we thought it might be time to have an embellishment class with a nationally known teacher!
October 4, 5, and 6 we have scheduled
Julia Snyder to come and give us a lessons!
This month Pat will be heading to Detroit to attend the
National Academy of Needlearts Assembly
. Besides taking classes, she will be judging
, which is an amazing exhibit of all forms of needle arts. As we all well know, she will come back inspired. I am not sure where we will put whatever new ideas she has but we always find a way. We all benefit from her passion and travels into the world of needle arts.
At the end of March we are heading to Orlando, Florida for the first
Spring Needlepoint Market. We are hoping to bring back lots of new canvases, embellishments and accessories.
We will be having two trunk shows in
Charley Harper and
Mindy. There will be some great options for that special canvas which could be the very piece Julia Snyder guides you through using fabulous fibers and new and interesting stitches.
The next few months will be busy and there will be a number of closures so please check the website and shop postings.
Keep stitching and sharing - all of your projects are the ultimate inspiration to us.
Leslie and Pat
