Enough snow, I'm gonna think Autumn!

One of the positives about snow is that it sets up a wonderful ambience for stitching in front of the fireplace (and boy do I have a fireplace)!  While the current online Mystery Class - Mod Ornaments is now half over, I am focusing some attention to the next one in queue - HARVEST!

This beautiful canvas #R888 is hand painted by Robbyn's Nest and may be ordered through your local needlepoint shop.  The canvas may be ordered on 18ct or 13ct canvas.  The design area is 10"x15" and requires 14" x 19" stretcher bars.

This design gives us the beautiful fall colors and feelings without being holiday related.  So, it can be utilized and displayed much longer.  During our introduction lesson, we will discuss various ways to consider having it finished for display.

This Online Mystery Class is made up of 6 monthly lessons - each one is $25.00 and provided in pdf format so you get the lesson instantly!  You are billed once a month through PayPal.  Or, as many prefer, you may make a lump sum payment of $150.

Lessons provide detailed diagrams and instructions for the particular section covered.  Individual assistance is always available during the course of the class. We will be playing with some interesting techniques, threads and stitches.  Who knows what we might try out and experiment with (oops! that's ending a sentence with a preposition isn't it?)

Check with your local needlepoint shop as many have hosted a stitch-in at their shop for previous Online Mystery Classes.

To register all you need to do is send an email to: and state that you would like to participate and provide the email that is to be used for communicating.  Further instructions will follow.

You are responsible for ordering your canvas from your LNS and once the materials list has been completed and distributed you can choose to use stash, purchase or take advantage of shops that have notified me that they are able to provide a thread kit (I will be passing this information along to those that are registered once I get it compiled)!

So all that is left to do is register by March 15, 2015, get your canvas ordered and wait for the first lesson in mid-April!

We would love to have you join us!
