It's the return of Stitch of the Week! We're now going to be having a Stitch of the Week class again every Saturday morning at 12. Wendy will be teaching a fun new stitch every week. The class fee is $5. We will supply you with a piece of canvas, thread, a needle, and chart. These classes are a lot of fun and a great way to add new stitches to your repertoire. Our next class will be on January 21st. We hope you can come and take part!
Our next Embroidery class will be a fun one! We'll be making a Biscornu Pincushion!
A biscornu is an eight-sided pincushion that has become very popular recently. In fact we have one in our Bargello trunk show and the accompanying book by Janet Perry called Bargello Revisited, which we have in stock. "The word biscornu (sometimes written biscournu) is derived from a French adjective, meaning skewed, quirky or irregular." ("Biscournu Basics", 1999, 2009) They are made from two squares sewn together on point. Many are finished with a button in the center. Adorable!
This class is going to be a lot of fun. You'll learn a few stitches, and once you've completed it, our finishers can finish it for you into a pincushion. This class takes place on Saturday, January 28th, from 3:30 – 5:00. The class fee is $20 and includes fabric, thread, needle, instruction, and a beverage. Give us a call if you'd like to sign up for this great class!
