Did you miss the Explorations class?

ExplorationsI recently completed teaching Explorations for the Shining Needle Society. We had a great cyber class, and several student have completed their project already.

If you missed it, I’ll be teaching Explorations in person for Needlework Hideaway, a retreat in the Memphis area. The retreat organizers are allowing ghosts, so even if you can’t make it to Memphis you can still take the class. I created video stitch diagrams of some of the more complex stitches for the cyber class, and I can send those to you if you decide to ghost the class.

Explorations is 10″ x 10″ on 18 ct. canvas. I used several textures of threads, cotton floss, pearl cotton, rayon ribbons, rayon pearls, rayon floss, and metallics (of course!). ┬áLots of different stitches to keep you interested – Waffle, Jessica, Amadeus, herringbone leaves, walneto, crescents, celestial star eyelets, trellis, mosaic, pavilion diamonds, oriental, Milanese, criss cross hungarian, 6 trip herringbone, scotch, greek.

I’m offering it in 3 color ways, pictured here. The model was stitched in the Jewel color way. Too much color for you? Try the Ecru color way. Want more color but in the same palette? The Autumn color way is for you. Don’t like any of these colors? Choose the chart only option and I’ll help you select your own palette.

I’m excited to be teaching for Needlework Hideaway. I’ve taught for Hideaway and attended Hideaway several times. This year they have changed location because they were at capacity at their original venue. The Memphis retreat center will be easier to reach than the previous site, and Tracey and Pat have offered to pick up guests at the Memphis airport for those who want to fly in. This is an awesome retreat, very relaxed and congenial, so if you’re looking for a sweet getaway in the fall, try the Needlework Hideaway!
