So much is happening at Duo Designs that I can hardly keep up with the excitement!

Our successful Online Mystery Classes has just branched out!  Duo Designs has been committed to offer 6 Online Mystery Classes per year - that is a new class every 2 months.  We strive to offer a wide variety of classes because our student participants have a wonderful range of requirements and interests such as stitching ability and theme preference.

A new request has come to our attention and it has resulted in the development of a new line of Online Mystery Classes.  This new grouping of classes is called Special Interest Online Mystery Classes.  What is that?

A group of students approached me to do an Online Class of a specific canvas that they were interested in doing.  Now this canvas may not have as wide an interest audience as the 'regular' Online Mystery Classes so that is how it became Special Interest.

You too may request a Special Interest Online Mystery Class.  The only requirement is that you find a total of 4 or more who will commit to the class and we will take it from there.  Once the class is determined I will offer it up just like any other Online Class. Just keep in mind that 'Special Interest' means there may not be the larger number of enrollees as for the regular classes. (This class does not interfere with the schedule of the regular Online Mystery Classes.)  Think of it as 'something extra'.

Now for the good news:  The first Special Interest Online Mystery Class is going to be the fantastic Brenda Stofft Design Easter Rabbit with Morning Glories.

Isn't he stately!  Look at all the fun we are going to have with this guy.  The design area is 7" x 11" with a cut canvas size of 11" x 15" for stretcher bars. The canvas ordering information is on the bottom of the picture and can be provided to your local needlepoint shop so they can order a canvas for you.  Let me know if you need assistance.

Registration will close for this class on November 15, 2015.  The first class is scheduled to be posted mid-January 2016. The 6-lesson packet will be $150.00.  Classes will take place on a secret Facebook Page.  Once payment is processed, you will receive an invitation to the secret Facebook Page that you need to accept.  There you will find your fellow participants, general information and the materials list when it is completed.  There will also be a list of shops who have agreed to provide thread kits for those who do not have a  LNS or who do not want to gather their own supplies.

We wanted to share this information with you so that you could start planning for participating if interested.  There are gift opportunities coming up before the class starts and there may be some trunk shows out there that you can take advantage of as well since most offer a purchase discount at the time of the showing.

To Register now just send email to:

So think about this and start planning!  Stay tuned as there are many more announcements in the future - like tomorrow!

Also, be sure to scroll down and see the previews of some more exciting classes that are in the works!

In the meanwhile, remember to stitch with a smile!
