In a couple weeks we will be at Chandail in Houston.  The class is very exciting!  It is a Robbyn's Nest design of Butterflies.

So, what makes this class extra exciting?  The bling!  and Bling is an understatement.  There are actually 2 classes if you prefer.  The class begins with a one-day class all about adding beads to needlework.  Then we gravitate into the next two days where we apply some of the techniques we learned in the beading class.  Wait until you see the finished piece!  I won't share until after the class as they should get to see it first - so stay tuned.  I believe that Chandail does handle ghosts so you should contact Saira at and ask for details.  Of course, we'd love to have you in person so you can join in the giggles!

The first part of August we will be at Stitchers Garden in Naperville, IL.  This is an embellishment class and she is offering several options broken down into 2 day increments.  I do believe the class is full however.

The American Needlepoint Guild national Seminar is set in Washington, DC this year.  It is held from August 22-27, 2019    I am fortunate enough to be teaching two classes at this event.

One class is August 25 and is on hairdos.  It is called Can Do Hairdos. This is an encore class.  It involves several techniques that can be used to create different types of hair styles - curly, straight, wavy, etc.  All materials are included except stitchers bring their own normal stitching supplies and stretcher bars to fit the canvas.

The second class is called Stitching Solutions.  This is a one-day workshop for assisting participants with problems they may have with a particular technique on a canvas they have.  We will have fun analyzing those projects that are brought to the class and share discussions regarding various possible solutions.

Then we are off to the West Coast to teach for the Space Needlers ANG Group.  We will be teaching the fantastic Maggie piece Winter Cardinal on September 14-15, 2018.

Stitchers should contact me at to register. As it says on registration form, checks made payable to SpaceNeedlers ANG and my address is listed for mailing. I can do paypal also.

Also want to send out a teaser. Email me at if you would be interested in participating in an Online Mystery Class for the too cute Strictly Christmas 'Tag's' designs. I am considering the one of Santa's Tags and/or the one on Spooky Tags. It will depend on whether there is enough interest.

These are on 13ct canvas and will involve a 6-month class composed of one class a month.  The classes will not be starting until mid-to-late 2019.  Just let me know and we'll see how that works out.  They are super fun!

Have a wonderful and safe Memorial Day Weekend.  Thank you to all the veterans out there for your service - including my Dad, Husband, Brother, Cousins, Relatives and Friends.
