          Zoom class with Celeste Chalasani
          "Tidal Treasures"

Tidal Treasures:  Some of my fondest memories are of walking along the beach picking up sea shells.  As the waves gently roll in, I search the sandy beach to see what treasure I might discover.  Each shell is a mystery, a question of what sea creature once inhabited it.  In this class, you will create your own tidal treasures: a starfish needle minder, a sea urchin pin cushion and scallop needle book.

Kit includes instructions, silk shantung, silk dupioni, Weeks Dye Works stranded cotton threads, Mill Hill Antique Glass Beads, Ultrasuede, finishing materials and needles.  Students to provide 4" and 6" embroidery hoops, 10" x 10" Evertite frame or stretcher bars with brass tacks and tightening tool, 6" ruler, white tissue paper, tweezers, masking tape, scissors for cutting paper and felt, mechanical pencil or similar, straight pins, cream colored sewing thread, needle threader, and usual stitching supplies.  Magnification and lighting is highly recommended.

Skill Level:  Advanced
A registration coupon is provided for this meeting.
