Coming to the Cape!

So excited to be visiting Osterville Needlepoint in charming Cape Cod for a weekend of stitching.  Please join us for three days of basically whatever you want!  Some call it an embellishment class, others call it help, while others (ahem, me) call is whatever you want!  I'll be working with customers on new canvases, guiding them through stitch and thread selections.    

Please join us!  Contact the store at 508-428-4455 or info@ostervilleneedlepointshop.com.

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.

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.

For more information, please contact the store at 313-886-2828 or knotted.needle@gmail.com.
