If you are looking for something to make for your donation to the Salon des Artisans, this workshop is for you. Diana will have a supply of fabrics, threads and beads and will show you how a little bit of embellishment on a piece of printed fabric will make a unique card. You will choose a card format from several available options and then stitch something to fit in the opening. We will keep the cards and when you turn in your completed stitching, Eunice will put them together so that they can be sold at Salon in November.

Level: All

This is another opportunity to make a card for the Salon des Artisans. The designs will already be punched in the cards and you will follow some simple directions to stitch them up. The only thing we ask is that you give them back when they are stitched. If you want to make other cards for yourself, we will tell you where to find free patterns.

You may have seen the lovely pieces Diana created after learning this technique at Seminar 2017. Come to this class and learn how you can create your own stitched masterpiece using a favourite photograph as inspiration. You will supply an original photo of a landscape (no animals or people). If the photo is not your own, you will need to have the permission of the photographer. The picture will be replicated with thread on silk fabric, using simple stitches. Colours and shading are the most important part.

Bring your printed colour photograph (4” x 6” recommended), a 10” hoop with the inner ring bound, a 4” hoop, notebook, pencil, eraser, small ruler, scissors, #5 or #6 crewel needles, and DMC floss to match your picture. Your kit will contain the silk background fabric, cotton fabric, practice cloth, dressmaker’s carbon and tracing paper. Specialty threads from the teacher’s stash and the guild stash of threads will also be available. If you are unsure about whether your photo is suitable, bring more than one and Diana will help you decide which one to stitch.

This class is not suitable for a novice stitcher. Some experience with colour and shading is also preferred.
