Knotted Needle

I will be visiting The Knotted Needle in Grosse Pointe Woods, MI for a three-day Project Choice extravaganza.  I don't know what we will be working on together yet, but listed below are just a few possibilities.

Project Choice is a concept where the customers select the whimsicalstitch.com project of their choice.  They are seated together by project and I work with each group to provide insight and guidance as they work on their project.  It's a lot of fun.

The Beehive

I'm joining the crew at Bedecked and Bedazzled in Maryland for a lovely weekend of stitching.  

First up is a two-day class (June 16 & 17) featuring Melissa Shirley's Passion Flowers & Birds by Emma Williams.  It's a feast of small stitches, pattern stitching, beads, ribbons, some brand new threads, and a wonderful body of water.

And, to top it all off, there's an additional day class (on June 18) featuring Zecca's Royal Peeps.  I've had a blast playing with fabulous threads, beads, new stitches, and lots of beautiful texture for the border.  The unstitched canvas makes me smile; the stitched canvas just makes my heart sing.

If you would like to sign up, give Bedecked and Bedazzled a call 410.296.0405.  Hope you can join us!  It promises to be a blast!
