Teaching at Peacock Alley Needlepoint 2014 - part 1

Hi Everybody... Robin here...

Today I am traveling to Peacock Alley Needlepoint in Ada, Michigan for 2 days of Canvas Enhancement classes: August 1 & 2, 2014.

Heading back to the Mitten State

Blog readers will remember all of the good times I had there last year. I'm so fortunate to be asked to return again.

This time there were 9 stitch guides to write, and Peacock Alley Needlepoint has pulled the threads. We will have two days devoted to stitch development and all things for the love of needlepoint.

Let's look and see which canvases will be in the class...

There are two Melissa Shirley canvases, as well as a Machelle Somerville canvas, a Melissa Prince canvas, a EWE & Eye canvas, a Sandra Gilmore canvas,  a Charley Harper canvas,  a Birds of a Feather canvas, and the classic Lee's Needle Arts canvas. Quite a wonderful assortment.

Look at the colorful threads pulled for "Second Chances" by Machelle Somerville. There will be beads added for a little bling, too. Pretty Peacock-y colors, wouldn't you agree?

Machelle is the General Manager at Peacock Alley Needlepoint, as well as one of the hottest designers in needlepoint today. You can see her canvas line at Fleur de Paris.

I will take photos and will post them upon my return. It is fun seeing these canvases come to life.

Leo, the cat, wanted to say hello. He's the best suitcase-packing helper.



Until the next time... HUGS, Robin
