Gretchen Janesak was the owner of Threads, LLC in Charlottesville, Virginia, a full service needlepoint shop, from 2006 until late 2019. During this time, she taught many project and technique classes both in the shop, for guilds and at wholesale markets. In addition, she has written the stitch guides for many of the painted canvas classes which were offered. Her prior career was in the banking business, but she has been a stitcher since her teens and loves most of all to share her knowledge and passion gained from many talented teachers over the years with other avid needlepointers. Following the 2019 sale of Threads inventory to a new local shopowner, Gretchen plans to continue to teach for shops, guilds and individuals.
This bright, fun design is stitched with great materials from Painter’s Threads, Threadworx, Rainbow Gallery, Kreinik and Planet Earth. Techniques used are uncut turkey work, a darning stitch, and open stitches. All threads are single strand (except one!). This makes an appealing class for your students with just a bit of decorative stitch experience. Some stitch and thread substitutes will be discussed
