Our program will be in person at Thistle Needleworks.  We will have lots of Show and Tell.  We will continue to work on our Just for Fun! piece by Caela Conn Tyler.

"Just for Fun! A Study in Textures" was a cyber class by Caela Conn Tyler back in 2002.  Linda Berry stitched it and saved the detailed instructions with large scale diagrams and the emailed lectures and colored pictures sent with each lesson.  Stitches include whipped back stitch, Katie's Stitch, free-form needle weaving, web stitch, attaching beads, irregular eyelets & pulled coil, Rhodes circle, diamond darning pattern, flat diamond stitch, cushion cross corners, whipped spiders, diamond eyelets, Smyrna cross, looped ribbon and beads, filet stitch, large woven star, and loop stitch.
The piece is stitched on Congress cloth 12" x 12" (design is 6" diameter).

Schedule for the day to include:
        10 am to 12:00 pm Just for Fun!

          Zoom class with Wendy Moore
          "Kimono Imperial Ornament"

This delightfully sophisticated ornament finishes as a 4”x4” Mini-Kimono.  As an ornament, this kimono highlights a beautiful Bargello pattern in Imperial gold, red, and blue.  Using DMC Floche, Kreinik metallics, DMC & ThreadworX over-dyed floss, and a few beads, this kimono will make an impression.  You will explore how wonderfully the Bargello pattern fits into the kimono and stitch a unique variation of an octagonal Rhodes stitch.  The kit will include the canvas, all the threads and beads, instructions and photos.  Student will provide 8" stretcher bars (2 pair), laying tool, frame or frame weight, usual stitching supplies, and light and magnification if desired.

A registration coupon is provided for this meeting.  The deadline is October 1st.
