-ONLINE WORKSHOP JULY 16 - AUGUST 26-

AG2017

Missed it the first time? Well here's your chance to come go NUTS with me!
Join me for six full weeks of stitching & finishing fun!

This workshop is all about paying homage to one of Susan’s favorite gifts from nature.
The charming acorn-shaped needlework case will be stitched on 2 colors of linen (32ct used for model)
and is designed to hold scissors, needles and pins. The back of the case features her inspirational thought
“Dream big, for even a little nut can do great things.” –Susan

Follow along, and get an inside look at how Susan approaches the construction side of the designing process.
As the piece comes together, she will stop and discuss alternate ideas and options
that you might want to try on your acorn,
leaving you free to explore your own creativity along the way!

The counted cross-stitch design consists of full cross-stitch, lettering stitched Over 1*,
backstitch and joining the pieces together with whip stitch.
*an Over 2 alphabet will be provided for those who prefer to add their name or initials and date instead.

July 16 – August 26

Tuition: $55 (plus $5 admission to AG)

Workshop includes 3.5 hours of video instruction.

So how 'bout it? Come go NUTS with me!
