There is something I particularly love about this Needlepoint Class, it’s the same thing I love about the Rug Hooking Class and the Embroidery Class too, all of which are taught by Maurie Todd.  Yes, I love that Maurie teaches them but I also love that all of these classes require thinking right out of the box!
Many needlepointers follow preprinted canvases in a paint by numbers style. In this class you will learn how to transpose your own creative purpose to the needlepoint canvas.  In other words you make up your own designs.  I love that!

Above is a finished product by Maurie who is teaching the class.  Look at that lovely finishing on her pillow case!

Here is the same design in progress!

…and here is the inspiration! Maurie took a portion of one of Kate Austin’s repeat pattern designs to use as the centre piece of her pillow design.
I wonder what you might do?
