Robin is teaching at Columbus/TNNA Market 2012

Hi Everybody... Robin here.

We are approaching the one month countdown to the June 2012/TNNA Summer Market. New canvases to see; old friends to see, too. I am looking forward to my trip to Columbus.

I have been selected to teach 2 classes at TNNA.  How exciting is that!

Lotus Squared by Zecca on Saturday, June 23, 2012 from 8AM - 10AM. It is class number ST117 in room C216. The ZE 134 canvas is on 13 mesh and measures 6" x 6".

Here is the class description:

"Zen met Needlepoint when Robin King stitched Lotus Squared by Zecca (ZE 134). Beads, River Silks Ribbons and DMC Memory Thread as well as wonderful threads from Gloriana, Rainbow Gallery and Kreinik enhance this canvas by Zecca. The vibrant palette of Turquoise, Chartreuse and Orange are signature Zecca colors. The canvas design is on 13 mesh and was a dream to stitch."

The other class being offered is Kitty Bra and Tap Pants by SharonG on Monday, June 25, 2012 from 8AM - 10AM. It is class number MT104 in room C114. The BT50-42 canvas is on 18 mesh and measures 7" x 9".

Here is the class description:

"SharonG's timeless series of Bra and Tap Pants has a new twist when Robin King stitches the Kitty version: 3-Dimensional Painted Cat Felt Faces. A "barely there" technique was given to the Tap Pants; just the purr-fect touch."

I have been a fan of SharonG and her lingerie series for a long time. Here is the link to SharonG's website where you can see the other Bra/Tap Pants designs. I want to stitch more of them!

T. Clifton Art in Memphis, TN did the framing of Kitty Bra and Tap Pants. Nice and talented people. (They also framed the Sunflower and Berries.) I am very pleased with the end result. Love the Pink accent on the Frame.

For those Shop Owners attending this year's Columbus TNNA Market, please consider signing up for either (or both) of my classes. You will receive the canvas, the complete thread kit, and the stitch guide; all for the affordable TNNA member admission fee. I will share the techniques I learned along the way. If you are not a shop owner, but rather an avid stitcher or fan of this blog, please mention these two classes to your Local Needlepoint Shop (LNS)... just in case they weren't aware.

The donated threads for both classes have arrived; time to package the thread kits. Next, I will create the teaching manuals as well as begin printing the class stitch guides. Yes, the countdown to Columbus has begun.

Until the next time.... Hugs, Robin
