Some of our Previous Classes

Time To Be Happy
with Denise Harrington-Pratt

This fun, contemporary sampler was taught in an 8-lesson class featuring a plethora of counted stitches, some of which students may not have encountered before. Some of the stitches were: nun, rapid, French, double-running, zig-zag Palestrina, alternating double back, Ohio star, triple back, celestial eyelet, wrapped triangular eyelet and many more.



Fifty Shades of Pai(sley)
with Amee K. Sweet-McNamara

Fifty Shades of Pai(sley) was an exotic exploration of exciting textile techniques that covered basic soutache techniques such as Aligning & Stacking, Backing & Edge-Beading. Experienced stitchers were able to add new skills to their repertoire: Inlays, Working with Twisted Cord, Making Pinwheels, Incorporating Shibori Ribbon as well as several styles of bead embroidery.

Creating Beaded Gardens
with Nancy Eha

A class for all experience levels where students learned a variety of Crazy Beading stitches.  Crazy beading is an original technique of Nancy’s where she has devised a method of accurately and uniformly replicating embroidery stitches with beading patterns. Students learned to create a variety of beaded vines, petals, leaves, stamen, grapes, wisteria, and berries using mostly small size 11 seed beads.

Gilded Pomegranate
with Deborah Merrick-Wilson

This class introduced embroiderers to the art of traditional English goldwork at the beginning and intermediate levels. A discipline unto itself, no previous experience with metal threads was necessary. Techniques covered included invisible couching with gilt pearl purl, contoured chipping, “S”ing and “Z”ing, pattern stitching, gilt spangle and gold seed bead attachment, padding with English felt and bumpf, and proud looped chipping. Suggestions for optional, open patterned background treatments will also be provided.
