HOT AND HUMID here in Central Kentucky!
Yesterday we had a horrendous storm at Arthur Acres. Hubby said he believed that was the loudest thunder he ever heard! Scary lightning! And torrential rains! Guess it is that tropical storm heading up our area.
I'm playing the nursing mother this weekend as I sit with my homebound daughter (Teresa - the other half of Duo Designs) to give my son-in-law a little break. We all need a little relief every now and then.
ANG VIRTUAL SEMINAR 2021
I am just about ready to post my lessons for my upcoming classes. First up will be Heloise Hooty!. We plan to send her kits out Monday barring no complications. You will receive a notice when the mailing actually occurs so you can watch for your kit.
ZOOM CLASSES - ONE-ON-ONE WORKSHOPS
We will be introducing a new way for us to share suggestions for stitches and threads for your canvas! We are introducing two new venues. We will start with personal one-on-one workshops. If you have a canvas on which you would like to have a private one-on-one workshop email me at email@example.com for details . Each session will be a minimum of 2 hours and a maximum of 4 hours.
ZOOM CLASSES - UNIQUELY YOURS WITH A TWIST
Pick a canvas! A unique way to tackle that canvas sitting in your stash that you are not sure where to start or just have some fun with a brand new canvas. Either way you'll end up with a canvas that is uniquely yours.
I give you the stitch, I give you the graph for the stitch and I give you a demonstration or explanation for the stitch. You decide where to incorporate on your project canvas.
We'll be exploring stitches and threads in this unique class. Bring your own canvas to life with a multitude of stitches, techniques and variety of threads. You use up some of those threads in your stash. You will need to have for the class: 1 overdye thread , 1 boucle, 1 metallic, 1 shiny non-metallic (like Patina, Panache, Rayon), 1 ribbon like (Neon Rays), 1 silk straw, 1 fuzzy (Legacy, Artic Rays, Fuzzy Stuff) and of course your main thread color in Pepper Pot Silk, Planet Earth, Vineyard Silk or silk of your choice.
You will receive one 30 minute Zoom session @7 p.m. each week for the cost of $100 for the complete 12 sessions class. The class will include a minimum of 12 stitches/techniques during the 12 week class. You will receive your Zoom link and a more detailed description upon receipt of your class fee. Additionally you will receive an invitation to a private FaceBook Group where you may share your progress and see other unique approaches by your fellow participants.
Uniquely Yours with a Twist will have its first session September 15. Don't wait to sign up and get your spot in this fun adventure. Deadline for signing up and paying your class fee is September 8. Email me at firstname.lastname@example.org and I will send you a Paypal invoice for the class fee. Looking forward to spending time with each of you and seeing your unique creations!
SANDY'S SATURDAY STITCHES
We have quite a few new followers who were not around way back when I shared our weekly notebook stitches. More recently our blog included the weekly stitches of Hearts A to Z (you can scroll back and catch them if you missed them the first time). It was decided that in our Saturday chats it might be fun to introduce a stitch or technique and reintroduce some items from our 2011-13 Website Notebook shares. We, of course, always welcome requests along the way. If there is a particular stitch or technique you would like explained or maybe just see approached in a different way, simply send an email to email@example.com and we will give it a shot.
We will begin next week with the tried and true form we used previously and share how we suggested you save the fruits of your labors for future reference.
So get those requests over to us and we will begin next Saturday with our first stitch!
