          Snowflake Ornament Class

We will be piloting this new design for Vicky at our December meeting.  She taught another ornament class to several members of NER recently.  This class instruction should be completed in about two hours, but we will be starting it at 9 a.m. to accommodate her schedule.  The only cost for participants is the kit fee of $20.  Please fill out the coupon shortly as we will need to know the number of kits to be prepared.

A coupon is provided for this meeting.  The deadline for registration is November 1.

    Zoom Class with Celeste Chalasani
    "Summer Serenade" with detached wire slips

Sweet living in the summertime!  Imagine a warm summer morning with juicy blackberries glistening in the sun.  Bees buzz on their search for nectar while a caterpillar lazily crawls along a stem.  This stump work class brings this vision to life as students learn and practice a variety of dimensional stitches and padding techniques.

There is a change of plans for this month so that we can offer a wonderful class with Celeste via Zoom.  On each day we will have approximately 6 hours of instruction.  The price of the kit is $40 and will include instructions, silk shantung, cotton fabric, stranded cotton thread, pearl cotton, beads, felt needles and 33 gauge wire.

Students will need to have the following supplies to participate in the virtual program:
            12" x 12" Evertite frame or stretcher bars or 8-1/2" embroidery hoop
            cream colored sewing thread
            masking tape
            needle threader
            scissors for cutting paper and felt
            usual stitching supplies
            magnification is highly recommended

Because of the difficulty in securing supplies, the deadline for signing up for this class is November 15th.  Please send your registration coupon before that date and/or email Linda Berry at lindaberry343@gmail.com to let her know that you intend to participate on these dates.

A coupon is provided for this meeting.  The deadline for registration is November 15.

        Zoom Class with Wendy Moore

        "A Livelier Bargello Iris"

"This delightful bloom grows tall and proud on a fresh blue vintage canvas using Straw Silk, Silken Straw, Edmar Boucle` for the blossom, adding Caron Waterlilies for the leaves.  Over-dyed Perle cotton and floss fill out the frame.  As a design in Bargello and Laid Filling Stitches, it stitches up quickly in shades of lavender and purple in a multitude of values.  The background is left unstitched and the frame is simple Scotch couched long stitches, with unique corner and side motifs.  Watch as simple bargello stitches bring this iris to life!"

This class will be offered via Zoom on consecutive Saturdays for 3 hours on each day.  Because we are zooming for shorter time periods, these three hours will be mostly instruction with limited stitching.  The class is considered intermediate in level and is stitched on 18-count light blue vintage mono canvas.  The design size is 10 1/2" x 15 1/2".  The kit cost is $95 and includes the 16" x 20" line drawn canvas, threads to include straw silks, Waterlilies, and solid and over-dyed cotton floss and pearl cotton, instruction booklet and needles.

Students will need to provide:
            16" x 20" stretcher bars (one pair of each)
            tacks or staples
            laying tool
            usual stitching supplies
            light and magnification, if desired

Because of the difficulty in securing supplies, the deadline for signing up for this class is March 1st.  Please send your registration coupon before that date and/or email Linda Berry at lindaberry343@gmail.com to let her know that you intend to participate on these dates.

A coupon is provided for this meeting.  The deadline for registration is March 1.
