Stars Aligned

Follow the Rainbow of your dreams and eventually the stars will align. 

My inspiration for this piece is the story of how I have started my journey of a NAN certified Needlework teacher and designer. I have been thinking about this for a couple of years.  The past year I was invited to take a pilot class from Toni Gerdes and we discussed this possibility and it was probably too late to get started this year.  Her response was ”Watch Me! We’ll see you in Michigan in three weeks.”  All the logistics fell into place and all the “Stars Aligned“ for me to start my journey.  

This is a beginner needlework class, which is 12 hours in length. We will be meeting four times; each session will be for three hours. I will be sharing with you 11 different stitches that are part of three different stitch families: the straight, diagonal, and cross-stitch family.  We will use five different types of thread, which will give you a sneak-peak into the varieties of fibers that can be used in creating needle artwork.  The design will be on 18 count mono canvas.  The design is 8 inches wide and 7 inches tall.
