A lofty pincushion adorns the lid top and is embellished with a regal hare lounging on a ground of muted greens stitched with variegated silk floss.  The sides of the cushion are finished with twisted cording. The pieces are stitched on 32 count linen to capture fabulous embroidered detail.   The interior of the box is fitted with a stitched tool pad that is folded ‘accordion style’ to tuck into the box.  Stitches include square filling variation, three variations of woven band, sorbello knots, herringbone, Smyrna cross stitch, tent stitch, two variations of stem stitch, backstitch and cross stitch over 2 linen threads.  Slip pockets secure your favorite tool
 
Sunday Class- A Gift by Hand Conferred- Class cost is $360..this includes two nights lodging, breakfast, lunch during class, and the kit.  Deposit- $205.
A Gift by Hand Conferred Sherri Jones of Patrick's Woods Orange Coast Sampler Guild:
 
     A Gift by Hand Conferred: A diminutive presentation purse is safekeeping tokens reminiscent of Victorian era handcrafted gifts and endearments. The stitched verse reads; ‘A gift by hand conferred is oft’ to the costliest gem preferred.’ The heart shaped purse is stitched on 32 count linen in vintage pinks, greens and brown silks, and is gusseted with hand-dyed silk satin ribbon. The ‘gifts’ are crafted of materials similar to those used by stitchers of the 19th and early 20th century to create unique and sentimental tokens, such as a woven ribbon bodkin keep, walnut pyn poppet, folded thread cards, as well as heart shaped pieces stitched on linen and finished into pockets, needle books, pyn keeps and more. Kit includes linen, silk floss, and finishing supplies for the purse and tokens.
 
If you would like to take both Saturday and Sunday classes the cost is $700.

Jackie DuPlessis Weekend

September 9-11, 2016.......We welcome back Jackie DuPlessis of It's Fine-ally Finished for two more fabulous classes

 

Princessa and the Pea.................Jackie du Plessis of It's Fine-ally FinishedPrincessa and the Pea.................Jackie du Plessis of It's Fine-ally FinishedPrincessa and the Pea.................Jackie du Plessis of It's Fine-ally Finished
 
Princessa and the Pea- $360 with a  deposit of $185 
      When you hear the words ?Princess? and ?Pea? you immediately think of the Hans Christian Anderson fairy tale called ?Princess and the Pea?.  This beloved fairy tale evokes thoughts of stacking mattresses a princess and hidden treasures.  I wanted to create a collection of functional and stylish objects that reflect our time.  This project is centered around a Pea Pod theme and explores different mediums such as paper, paint, linen, wool and silks.
        
The Princessa and the Pea is a collection of three stacking paper Mache boxes, painted and waxed in class.  These three boxes each with a theme is stack, one on top of the other, and represent three green peas.  A silk fabric pea pod case snugly holds the three pea boxes together.  Tendrils with button flowers made of paper, wool and ribbons cascade down from the soft, scalloped woolen needle page leaves.  
    
Each of the pea boxes stores a theme:
The top box: Rock - a tiny Jade bead sits upon stacking pillows next to a tiny tiara.
The middle box: Paper and all treasures made with paper.  
The bottom box: Scissors.  

Note that the buttons are attached in sets of three, representing the three peas with the three pea boxes.
No collection could be complete without a stitched Pea Pod needle case created with a pulled stitch mimicking three tiny peas.  

Your kit will include all the supplies needed to stitch and assemble the Princessa and Pea project alone with detailed pictures and instructions.

Optional items:
Scrimshaw thread winder and ruler available for purchase.
Wooden pea thread holder

Janis Note-Noteworthy Needle-not sure yet what Janis will be presenting however,  she really enjoys the process of creating a design as well as teaching others the steps to complete the projects, so we should have a good time not only stitching this one, but also finishing it.

Linda Vinson-Needlemade Designs-Linda is busy creating for us as we speak, so I haven't any info on this yet either.  But in the past she's done some really interesting finishing so this could get exciting. 


As soon as I know more I will post it.  So hang on and stay tuned.
