Class Description:

 We will be stitching an amusing whimsical lady by Leslie Murray from CBK. Threads used include Single Loop from Painters’ Threads, Estaz, Splendor, Floche, and Pearl Cotton. Special stitch techniques are open stitching and hints on handling threads that do not fit into the canvas holes readily. You will also learn to make fingers for a stumpwork (three-dimensional needlework) attachment of two three-dimensional champagne glasses. You may purchase them separately from an Esty shop (link provided).Three kinds of beads add an extra dose of sparkle. 

What students should bring:

 Stretcher bars will be included. Please bring the usual stitching materials. A hands-free support of the canvas is a must for the stumpwork and attaching the beads and the Painters’ Thread. Clamps are easy to pack, but they do not attach to all tables. In that case, a lap or table frame stand would be especially helpful. You might find a magnifying glass and a cordless light valuable.
