Teaching Flowers in a Vase at In Stitches-Atlanta

Hi Everybody... Robin here.

I am getting ready to go to Atlanta... to teach at In Stitches-Atlanta. I am most anxious to see their new store (conveniently located right across the street from their former location).

You might ask: "What are you going to teach, Robin?"
"Thank you for asking," I would reply.

Flowers in a Vase for a 2-day class. Saturday, August 17 and Sunday, August 18. The pace will be comfortable and thorough.

Stitch Guide available from Robin King

I will demonstrate the Stumpwork, Ribbon techniques, Raised Fishbone, Messy Beading, Sparkles... and anything which might be fun for the class.  I will also share my secrets for successful beading. You know me... I'm the See One, Do One, Teach One gal.

And, there will be lots of stitching done, too. How fun is that?!

I am most appreciative to return to In Stitches-Atlanta. Very charming and friendly. Just what every needlepoint teacher would hope for. Looking forward to seeing their new owner, Jeanene.

I'll have my camera ready to take photos of their new place. Wonder what kind of stash enhancement I will do? Threads? Accessories? Canvases? Oh, can't wait. Love flying to ATL. From Memphis: wheels up to wheels down is about 57 minutes. It's my home-away-from-home.

Recently, I was sent a photo of a finished Flowers in a Vase by Kathy Hix who was in my class held at Stitch by Stitch in Larchmont, NY. Look at the wonderful embellishments.

Begin with the stitch guide and then make it your own.

Kathy is an excellent stitcher and I am honored to see her variation. Makes me proud. (Note to self: Always be on the lookout for buttons and baubles!)

Well, that's it for now. Time to gather and pack... all while not disturbing Max the Cat. He is so comfortable.



Until the next time.... Hugs, Robin
