Wow, what a whirl wind weekend. We had a magnificent time with Laura Taylor teaching 2 magnificent pieces.
In the Fall Laura will be back for another 5 days of camp. We will be offering the "Halloween Basket" as a 3 day class and a 2 day Canvas Enhancement class. We are filling up fast..
I love the way Laura stitches. She has a touch that allows each element to speak for itself. I hope you will join us. Get details here Laura Taylor.
And then for next spring (April 2015),
We are so excited to offer this very special canvas depicting Charles Wysocki's "Rooster Express" for our Hill Country Stitching Camp next Spring. Laura Taylor fell in love with the painting several years ago and wished that it could be a needlepoint canvas. When we began thinking about the project for next April we decided to see how we could include this delightful piece of folk art in our event. After several phone calls and conversations with the Wysocki Estate Laura gained permission to have it painted and reproduced for our class. This canvas will only be offered for class and cannot be purchased after the class takes place. We are honored to offer the "Rooster Express" and cannot wait to see Laura's interpretation of this folk art gem.
We had Brenda Stofft paint and recreate it for us only as she could do.
April 23-26, 2015
We are still working out the plans for the weekend. The class fee will be between $400-$450 for the 4 days and we will have a limit of 18. At the moment this is all we have.
Now for Share a Stitch!
I am calling this stitch Excalibur. I plan on giving to someone for a stitch on a stocking.
Use a metallic for the dark stitches.
So now I am signing off so I can go pack for vacation in Santa Fe. See you next Sunday!
