Now that early registration is over, etc., it has been confirmed that my classes are a go at the upcoming EGA National Seminar being held in fantastic San Antonio, TX.

I will be teaching two 2-day classes at this year's venue.  One is a new piece, Pumpkin Spiced Tea.

This wonderful piece has the smell of fall in the air.  The colors of autumn abound.  The canvas size is 14" x 16" on 13ct canvas.  Luscious threads such as Gloriana, Pepper Pot, Rainbow Gallery, Vineyard Silk and Burmilana, to name a few, will glide through your fingers while executing such interesting stitches as a bargello wave,  Scotch stitches, balloon variations, cashmere, and many, many more.  The excitement of needle felting on needlework is a great technique where we will be using the fantastic Painter's Thread silk roving and tools specific to the technique.  

The second 2-day class is a self-finishing ornament entitled Diamonds and Rubies.  The student will have a choice of one of three color ways:  red; blue; or, gold.  

The piece is stitched on 18ct canvas 8" x 12".  Wonderful metallics, beads and ribbons will add to our adventure.  An in-class demonstration will be done for watching the assembly of the ornament for when you return home.  Stitches include crescent variation, diagonal tent stitch, upright Gobelin, slanted Gobelin, interrupted pavilion, twisted bead rope and beaded fringe creation, and bead attachment.  

Registration is open so be sure to visit the EGA website - egausa.org and go to Events - National Seminars and review the classes and registrations steps.

I would love to have you join me for my classes.  Hope to see you there!
