                    "Thread for All Seasons"

"Thread For All Seasons" offers a chance to work with the design color of your choice.  There are three color options from which to choose: Seasons, Jewel and Spring!  After this exercise, you will better understand how colors work together and how colors work off each other.  This exercise will be a real eye opener!
"Thread For All Seasons" is stitched on 18-count canvas measuring 9" x 9".
The finished size of this delightfully colorful piece is 6" x 6".
Class Objectives:
Learning how canvas color and threads work together is important for anyone doing needlepoint.  In the piece "Thread For All Seasons" the stitcher has the opportunity to delve deeper into this relationship.  The stitcher will pick out which painted canvas they like (from three color choices).  A stitch guide is provided.  Come play with this design, challenge your sense of color and work outside your box!  Join the color revolution!
