HERE WE GO AGAIN . .       

We had to postpone Father's Day celebration at Arthur Acres this year.  Too much covid stuff too close to home and hubby just coming out of quarantine himself to take a chance with the long awaited upcoming surgery. So we have an excuse to have another celebration after the dust settles.

Made scheduled trip to hospital for the surgery only to be told it was cancelled until the end of August.  That long awaited surgery just got longer!


Three Wisemen has gotten into full swing and everyone is busily working away! The carrot at the end of the stick is the finished piece.  They know where they are heading!

Next up is a Mystery Class - the Chinese Lanterns from JP Needlepoint.


As I work on each of the 12 sessions for this adventure I get so excited to be able to share the various techniques with my students.  We will be doing so much on this piece:  loads of stitches, techniques, suggestions and experiments.  The threads we have today make it even more enjoyable!  And embellishments for sure! There will be beads and ribbons of course.  Some ordered just for this class.

Registration is active and we have a few canvases available.  Don't miss the opportunity to play with us on this great piece.  Email right away to to claim your canvas and join in the fun.

We have opened the private FB Group of this class.  If you have received your canvas you should have received an invitation to the group.  Let me know if you have not received your invite.  This is where all the happenings occur!  Discussions with fellow participants, questions, and lessons all take place in this Group!

Registration will close this weekend so if you wish to join us just send email to us at This event is 12 Sessions in length.  So many techniques will be shared!  Can't wait!  Trying to begin by mid-July.

Embellishments! Embellishments!

I just have to share the progress for our Sunday Dress upcoming face-to-face class scheduled in beautiful Boothbay, ME in Sept 30-Oct 1, 2022.  There will be so many techniques shared and beautiful threads used that your mind will be constantly saying to you 'oh we can use this on blah, blah canvas', or ' oh that is the thread I've been needing for so and so.'  

The printed canvas from The Art Needlepoint offered up a plethora of possibilities and has been tremendous fun stitching to bring the ladies that are depicted to life as seen by me.
