There's still space in my July 16th -18th hand stitching retreat in the north woods of Wisconsin. Here's information about my workshop, which will be at the amazing Woodland Ridge Retreat (between Madison and Minneapolis). Sign up by June 15th to guarantee a spot! :)
I just returned from a trip to Columbus, Ohio, where I had the good fortune to give a talk and teach a two-day workshop ("Begging for Embellishment") to a terrific bunch of women. Enthusiasm, creativity, and generosity were all around us as we spent two days exploring original design development as well as hand embroidery with beads and embroidery threads. I'm still smiling from the experience and hope to cross paths with all of these great ladies again. Here are just a few photos of the samplers they created and the lovely group. We were all sorry that Linda and Susan had to leave before the final group gathering yesterday. Thank you Julie, Carol, Madeline, Miriam, Carola, Joni, Ramona, Nan, Martha, (Linda, and Susan) for being such terrific students! And thanks to Miriam for being such a terrific hostess, organizer, and tour guide of the great city of Columbus, which is just bursting with redbud, dogwood, and crabapple blossoms right now. What a treat!
