I have been asked to consider adding a Penny MacLeon design to our class roster. A very sophisticated poll (tongue in cheek) was conducted and the winner is this cutie. Dana - Life of the Party. Email me at firstname.lastname@example.org if you would be interested in taking a class and be added to the notification list. It is very popular and I am pleased with the response and registration already in just a few days.
The design is on 13 ct canvas. The class will begin the first of the year - Jan. 2019. So plenty of time to save up and get ready.
I am so excited about the butterfly designs from Burnett & Bradley. These will be our new Quickie! Series classes.
This means that a design will be presented in a maximum of 2 sessions. I'll share more as details develop. In the meanwhile please email me at email@example.com to be included on the notification list. Canvases have been ordered and I can't wait to start stitching and planning. Lots of fun possibilities.
These designs vary in size from approximately 4" x 5 - to 7 inches. Very manageable. They are on 18 ct canvas. As canvases must be ordered ahead, there will be a $35 deposit required once I get my ducks in a row. The balance (which will vary depending on threads, beads, ribbon, etc.) will be due one month prior to the first lesson being distributed!
A few closeups:
Aren't they lovely. And room to do some fun techniques. There's more designs too! I can't wait to start stitching them! Where is that mailman????
Another specific request involved that green character design from Raymond Crawford:
Being the focal point of a wreath gives us many options for decorating the various ornaments. This guy cannot be added to the agenda until mid-2019 if there is enough interest.
Or this happy colorful wreath:
This design takes me away to a beautiful, serene beach somewhere. Again, if there is enough interest this guy will be added mid-to late- summer 2019.
And, don't forget our wonderful Stitching Down the Danube riverboat stitching cruise! I received the optional class canvases and I am excited to be putting the kits together so we can begin sign ups. There will be a limited number available.
Okay enough dreaming. Next week we will be sharing another group of monthly lessons from our Online Mystery Classes. Stay tuned!
