Our first lesson in the Uniquely Yours With a Twist series is well on it's way!  We shared the first session Wednesday (and had some storm resulting bumps as well as user error) I  and we will have a makeup class today, Saturday, for those who could not attend Wednesday.  Such fun canvases.  Each day we can't wait to visit the private FB Group and see how everyone is applying what has been taught!  Everyone is doing such a great job and it is so fun to watch as each shares their experience! We are all very excited!  

Are you aware of our new Zoom classes?  Here is the next one that is an ongoing event.  

One-on-One with Sandy

How about your very own private lessons with no interruptions or sharing of instructor time?  The One-on-One Zoom sessions are all about private tutoring. The sessions go for 6 weeks each. They are 1 hour in length with a short break.  The day and time for the class is set by you!  Once selected all 6 of your sessions will be on the same day at the same time each week.  You provide your own canvas and threads.  We ask that you provide a good quality picture of the canvas.

    *You will receive a pdf of the stitch diagrams discussed each week. You may print them out                 for your personal use.

    *You will receive thread and embellishment suggestions for each area discussed.

    *You will receive hints for executing various techniques.

    *You will receive a live demonstration showing how to execute each stitch discussed.

    *You will have a detailed discussion about how to read your canvas to make determinations for developing a stitching plan.

    *You will discuss how you want your canvas to look when finished:  open stitches or solid coverage; beads-no beads; ribbon-no ribbon; dimensional stumpwork techniques?   

Classes fill quickly so be sure to reserve your day of the week and time for your very own private sessions.  Email us at for more details and questions.

We have a full gamut of happenings here so far.  We have WIP that have come to a halt because there is this 'brick wall' that has appeared; we have beginning stitchers who want to learn our art; we have seasoned stitchers who are seeking a different point of view; we have a place for YOU!  Come on over and have more fun!

ETSY SHOP - duodesignsbySandra            

We continue to add items to our Shop as time permits.  This past few days we have started adding some lots of skeins of DMC Medicis Wool.  There are many more colors available and we'll add as we can.  If you are looking for a certain color, however, just email us and we'll check for you -

We have also added a limited number of self-finishing pendants for your needlework, painting, sewing, etc. 

We used this for our Grapes pendant 

Here's some uses for the round ones:

Lots of fun possibilities.

When these are gone - they are gone!

Additional stitch guides this week too:

For you cross-stitch lovers we have added Autumn Lace which makes a great insert.
