Just a little over 2 weeks left to register for the ANG Tucson Virtual Seminar Classes! I understand registration is going well. Can't wait to see who all is going to play with me. I so enjoyed doing both of these designs.
Crazy Needles Journey
Saturday, June 6, 2020
This is one of those weeks where I am going to bury my head in the sand before I say or do something that will not sit well with one group or another. We are going to be all about stitching and enjoying our personal time!
Have you registered for your ANG Tucson Seminar distance-learning classes as yet? While there is no class size limit for most classes there is a deadline for registering. June 30 at 5 pm all doors close! Don't miss out on this rare opportunity!
You know how at in-person Seminars you can't have your coffee or drink conveniently placed on the table for fear of an accident ruining your table mate's project? Well at the Tucson Distance Learning Seminar that is not an issue!
Be sure to check our my two classes - Crazy Needles Journey and Flags of Glory. Would love to have you participate.
NEEDLE FELTING ON NEEDLEWORK
Last week I introduced you to the class we are offering for needle felting on needlework - Spring Welcome from PLD Needlepoint. This was a technique I introduced at TNNA market to shop owners many many years ago - and they were a little skeptical! Remember we were trying to get over the fact that it was okay to do more than basketweave on needlepoint canvas. Spring Welcome is this adorable bunny admiring a daisy with a sweet butterfly sharing in the excitement of Spring.
This will not be a mystery class. You will see the finished design before we start stitching. We are going to work with beads, needle weaving, off-canvas stitching, padding, appliqué and stump work in addition to the major focus - needle felting.
This class will include a full kit with supplies needed to complete the design. There is 1 felting needle included in the kit. For those who do not have needle felting tools, an optional needle felting tools kit will be offered for purchase. As said before, I am passionate about the tools I use for my felting and love them. I feel they help provide the participant with an enjoyable experience of learning to needle felt. Proper tools are always a plus - especially when one has RA.
For those of you who do not know what to expect here is a sample of a needle felted cat on a needlepoint design. This is Wizard of Paws by Brenda Stofft and was an earlier class.
ONLINE MYSTERY CLASSES
Getting geared up to start the Just Add Water companion piece by CBK. It was hard to choose the next one but I felt this one had more in common with the first one we did previously and therefore would work well together.
Such fun pieces to hang in the powder room don't you think? Invoices went out this week so if you think you are registered for this class and you have not received your invoice then you need to contact us right away at firstname.lastname@example.org. This class will begin mid-July.
