Teaching at In Stitches - Atlanta

Hi Everybody... Robin here.

Usually when I am "off the blog radar" it is because the blinders have been put on and I am focused on deadlines. This was yet, true again. So sorry!

I'd like to conclude my visit to In Stitches for you. Here goes...

The flight from MEM to ATL was easy breezy. Just the way I like it, right? I continued to work on pending stitch guides while at the airport.

Once on the plane we had a slight delay due to weather in Atlanta so they had us wait on the Memphis tarmac. Oh, the advantages of a window seat. Look who else was waiting.

Finally we took off...

... and landed in ATL. Comfortable weather 67 degrees. Can you believe this was August in the south?

I've had lovely opportunities teaching at In Stitches, and this time it was at their "new" location. Right across the street from their former location; a jewel to behold.

Jeanene Weiner, the new owner of In Stitches, was able to create (from a blank canvas) a wonderful shop. The light fixtures were like jewelry.

The bathroom was like a spa experience. I love this wallpaper.

The threads are arranged by color... so easy for selecting what you need.

The Flowers in a Vase class was taught to a full house. They learned Stumpwork, Ribbon Work, various Beading techniques and decorative composite stitches.

I also gave other demonstrations, too.

French Knots, Colonial Knots and Ribbon Flowers

Our hostess, Emeline Loughlin (manager of the newest In Stitches located in Newnan, GA) was the pure essence of southern hospitality. She treated everyone to a southern delicacy: Cheese Straws crackers.

She sent a box of Cheese Straws home for me. They were hand-carried... protected like the precious cargo they were.

Bringing some Georgia memories home with me.
Thanks, Emeline!

Great ending to a great trip

My time at In Stitches was so much fun. Good for the soul, too. I look forward to returning again.

I'm getting ready for another stitching destination. Will talk about it in the next blog.

Until then... Hugs, Robin
