All Day Stitch-In

Escondido, CA 92025

In addition to your choice of canvases - You will need the NeedlePoint Now Magazines for Sept/Oct, Nov/Dec, and also Jan/Feb! In these magazines are the original Stitch Guides - which Nancy will use as a base for the class.

There are also *6* accessory pieces available to go with the basic train! Call for pricing!

The beautiful Plaid Poinsettia will be supported by Nancy during her Everything Class.

Nancy Horne is a wonder teacher. She can assist you at any point, no matter where you in your project you are, and give you suggestions as to what you might want to do to enhance your canvas. If you are working on one of her projects, many include stitch guides but if you want to change something - she will help you to do it.

New Dorothy Class!!
Butterfly Effect by Threedles

Instructor: Dorothy
Date: MAY 30th

Threedles' Butterfly Effect pattern lends itself beautifully to using a variety of different threads. This piece is a study of textures achieved by using different threads of the same color.

Choose a main color and a contrasting color for the butterflies and dragonflies. You will also need a border color and a background color. I would be happy to help you choose your colors before class or feel free to choose your own.

Some suggestions - royal blue and black with silver background, orange and black with a gold background or you could choose a variegated color and go crazy!

PLEASE NOTE: We will need two weeks minimun notice to ensure your selection can be aquired for the class.

Teaching fee is $30
