Sherri Jones Weekend

April 15-17, 2016

It's exciting to welcome Sherri Jones back again in 2016 and she will again be teaching the following fabulous classes. 

An Afternoon Leisure Basket-A Petite Fitted Basket..

An Afternoon Leisure Basket..................Sheri Jones Class - 2016This little charmer of a swing basket measures just 5" long by 3" wide and is made of patinaed walnut.  It is a faithful and exquisitely crafted reproduction of an antique made exclusively for Patrick's Woods.  The basket is fitted with two pocketed books, a pin pillow, a velvet berry cushion, a scissors sheath and a figural pinkeep with a printed victorian graphic.  These fittings are embellished with stitched motifs reflecting a leisurely afternoon spent perched on a tree swing and chasing butterflies, stitched on 32 count linen with silk floss and pearl cotton.  Stitches include tent stitch, stem stitch, wrapped stem stitch, cross stitch, pattern darning and a variation of butterfly chain stitch.  Smalls are lined with ultrasuede and trimmed with fine silk ribbon.  Cost for the class is $495.00 and includes the wooden basket, complete kit, lodging, breakfast and lunch on day of class.  

A 'Garden Variety' Long Pocket....           

Garden Variety Long Pocket......................Sheri Jones Class 2016 Although the ringed long pocket was popular in the 18th century, it is often referred to as a Queen Elizabeth style pocket.  The long pockets were typically knitted or netted, but some were made of fabric.  This embroidered version of the long pocket features a silk bag wrapped with a linen band stitched in 18th century English style embroidery.  The pocket is accessed through an opening in the middle back and a brass ring slides over the opening to secure the contents.  The pocket is topped with an embossed brass cap and measures approx. 14" long x 3.5" wide.  The pocket is outfitted with stitched accessories that are attached to silk cording, suspended inside the pocket from the brass cap.  The cording can be pulled out to easily remove the accessories.  The embroidery is worked in stitches popular of the period, including tent stitch, long and short stitch, gobelin stitch, broad chain stitch, stem stich, Peruvian loop stitch and knots.  The edges of the linen are finished with a variation of a 3-sided edging stitch.  The pocket is easily finished with fine hand sewing.  Cost for this class is $345 and includes the complete kit, lodging, breakfast and lunch on the day of class.

You can take both classes or just one of the classes. Both classes will be $760.00 with lodging included.  To make a reservation for either of these classes, please contact Sara or Sally at Salty Yarns, (410) 289-4667, or e-mail ...saltyyarns@aol.com

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

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.
