Just wanted to update you with the projects I've designed for The Grand Olde Flag Gathering in Spring Green, WI in a couple of weeks. Jeanne says she'll make room for anyone that wants to come just for the cross stitch portion of the gathering. Contact her by phone.....608-5882510 or her website.......sgcountrysampler.com for details and prices.
The first project is called "The Gentlewoman's Stitch Box"
You will learn how to cover, line and distress this 7" sewing box in class and then will start on the stitched pieces to go inside. Since you won't have time to finish your stitching, we'll discuss and demonstrate finishing techniques as well.
The second project is a sampler (see unframed design above). It's designed around a Civil War Era theme. The house is my version of the Tallman House in Janesville, WI which was a part of the underground railroad and also a place that welcomed Abraham Lincoln on several occasions.
I'm really excited to share these projects with the "Gathering" stitchers and hope a few of you might be able to join us for the event. Jeanne and her shop girls always put on a spectacular event.......I can promise, a good time will be had by all !!!!! Hope to see you there !
That's all for now.....I've got to get started on my project for the class I'll be teaching for Tomorrow's Heirlooms in July.
Stay tuned for more updates!
Enjoy the beautiful weather and .......stitch, stitch, stitch !!
