Here’s the point

Anyone getting excited to needlepoint? I am !

I plan to sit in on this months Needlepoint Class and get started on a new creation.  We are very lucky that Ms Kate Austin has given us permission to use some of her fantastic designs.  We will reworked them into needlepoints.
Maurie Todd will teach us how this can be done.  Or if you have your own ideas of what you would like to stitch – so much the better. Bring them along.

Maurie has been doing  preparatory experiments with our Koigu mini skeins.

She has made this finely stitched coaster.

Excited yet?  I still am.

In this one evening workshop you will learn how:

  • to put needle to canvas, exploring a small sampling of stitches to create texture
  • to prepare a needlepoint canvas and to transpose a design for stitching
  • to calculating the amount of yarn you will need for a project
  • to put the finishing touches on your finished projects.

Maurie always brings to her classes a rich amount of resource materials. Be prepared to get distracted by lovely books that will give you a sense of the history and the diversity of this craft.
