- Workshop with Lynn Payette
Join us for this day as we have fun with Lynn and her amazing ideas for
embroidering. The schedule for the day is as follows:
Location: Duncaster Senior Residence in Bloomfield, CT
Schedule for Saturday:
10 AM to Noon
Noon to 1 PM
Show and Tell
and short meeting
1 PM to 3:30 PM
'Treasure', a pendant or pin, teaches the student unique techniques
for working with different threads, sheer and metallic fabrics, nettings,
handmade paper, and beads, as well as a fool-proof finishing method.
The student will finish 'Treasure' so that it can be used as either
a pendant or pin.
Note: Student will furnish their own neck chain, if desired.
The following is Lynn's welcome letter to class members:
||Welcome to the class "Treasure". You will
need to bring the following supplies to class:
Stretcher bars - 5" x 5" and tacks to mount the Congress Cloth
Assorted needles -- including: #22 chenille, #18 chenille, #22 tapestry,
#8 or #7 crewel, and a beading needle
Gluestick -- not the blue or purple type (be sure to check this, as blue
or purple gluestick will stain the fabric, and become permanent.)
Scissors -- small, very sharp; and paper scissors (these should be small)
A few small bags to separate the threads (if you wish)
A few common pins
A "C" clamp or other method of securing your working frame to the table
Additional lighting and magnification, if desired
A pillowcase or other means of covering your work for transport
Note: If you would like to make "Treasure" into a pendant, please bring
along the chain that you will be using, so that you are able to create the
correct size loops for the chain to go through.
I look forward to meeting you and teaching you "Treasure". I know that
you will enjoy making it as much as I did.
