I’m so pleased to announce that I am offering a new class with Shining Needle Society. Criss Cross is a smallish design (8″ x 8″), filled with fun stitches. I stitched the model in purple with yellow accents, but it’s also available in blue with yellow or green with yellow.
I recently taught this class for a Tucson area chapter, and we had loads of fun with it! I got to see the other color ways in progress and was pleased with how they were turning out. Also, one of the stitchers, Jan S., chose aqua with black threads for her own color way, and it was spectacular! She had so much fun stitching she finished the project in 2 weeks!
Jan has given us permission to use her color/thread list, so that’s a fourth option on colors. Or, you can do what several in the class did and choose your own color way. The thread list is limited in palette so it’s easy to create your own out of stash or during a shopping frenzy at your local shop. I’ll be happy to send a thread list so you can create your own color way. You can read about Jan’s stitching this project at her blog, http://stitchlady.wordpress.com.
The Shining Needle Society is a wonderful partnership for me, and I think the many students involved like it as well. Here’s a link to the announcement, so you can read all the details for yourself and see Jan’s color way.
I’m planning to do video stitch demonstrations of the more challenging stitches, like double fan doubled, crescents and such. So even if you’ve never done these kinds of stitches, you’ll have a video of me doing it, close up, that you can repeat as needed until you’ve mastered the stitch. It’s just like having me stitch beside you!
If you have any questions feel free to email me, or leave a comment and I’ll get back to you. I’m looking forward to this class!
