|June Meeting: Saturday, June
(Note: First Saturday of month)
"Spread Your Wings"
This meeting will be a one-day workshop with Debbie Forney, a teacher at
national seminars and Callaway School of Needlework. Her background
includes wholesale needlepoint designer and Certification in Embroidery from
the Royal School of Needlework. Thistle Needleworks
(see the directions) has offered
its classroom as our meeting place, so plan to be there at 10 AM.
Debbie will provide us with 4 choices of butterfly designs
(see the choices). We
will choose one and transfer it to congress cloth. She will discuss
why elements are chosen for a design and lead us through planning our own
color design on graph paper. There will be an extensive discussion
of textures and how to achieve them. She will give lots of advice about
how to choose threads to create effects. The kit fee is $15.
All you need to bring is colored pencils as there will be no stitching in
If you wish to order lunch, a menu from Mark's Restaurant will be available
when you arrive.
