Indie Pop puts the stitcher in the driver’s seat – you make the decisions about which motifs you want to stitch, which colors and threads you want to use, even how many strands! Now don’t worry: this is a carefully guided project so you can make fully informed decisions as you stitch.
The center motif, a large irregular Chilly Hollow stitch, and the composite ribbon dividing lines are the same for each project. There are four large areas, each with a border stitch, a motif stitch and a background stitch. The stitcher will have eight components to select from for their four large areas. No two projects will be alike. Choose the stitches you like the best, or stretch yourself with something new. The instruction book is extensive with thorough diagrams and written instructions, augmented with video stitch demonstrations and weekly Zoom sessions for face to face time with Debbie.
The instructions include lots of general guidelines for making stitching decisions, how to decide which texture to use where, number of strands for good coverage, etc. We have the project available in four color ways – Coral/Lilac, Neutral/Mauve, Tropical or Autumn. The kit includes Caron Collection Watercolours, DMC flosses and #8 pearl cottons, Rainbow Gallery Silk Lame’ Braid, Neon Rays and Neon Rays+, Kreinik #8 braids, and canvas with taped edges.
The design size is 8″ x 8″ on 18 ct. canvas; canvas cut size is 14″ x 14″. Coral/Lilac and Neutral/Mauve is on eggshell canvas, Tropical is on white canvas and Autumn is on sandstone canvas.
If you really want to fly solo, we have an instructions only option, or instructions with canvas (eggshell, sandstone or white). If you’ve taken the class before, either face to face or virtual, you can choose the audit option. Auditors are full class members with access to the weekly lessons, Zoom session, and video stitch demonstrations, but will not receive any materials because you should already have your supplies including instructions.
Indie Pop important dates:
Registration is open now through November 24, the day before Thanksgiving. This is an abbreviated registration period so decide quickly! We hope to conclude registration before Thanksgiving, so we can get the supply orders. It is taking 6-8 weeks for supplies to arrive, and we don’t want to be delayed by holiday mail, vacation times for the suppliers, etc.
Hopefully class kits will be shipped shortly after the new year.
Week of January 12 – tentative class start date, dependent on receiving supplies
Week of February 14 – class ends (again, depending on class start date). Classroom will remain open indefinitely for questions and access to class materials.
We’ll have weekly Zoom sessions, 5 in all. Zoom sessions will be recorded and added to the showcase of video stitch demonstrations. The showcase is private and only available to the class members; no one else will have access to these recordings.
