Hello, Crewel Friends!
We've just scheduled another workshop at One Strange Bird in Chicago for Saturday, April 14th. I'll be teaching this two hour crewel embroidery workshop and I'm bringing a trunk load of crewelwork samples including new projects from my upcoming book, New Crewel: The Motif Collection, which comes out in May. (I'll even have a few advanced copies with me!) After a brief introduction of the crewel basics, I'll demonstrate eight different crewel stitches and finishing techniques. Participants will receive all the supplies needed to get started -- linen fabric, wool thread, needles and a hoop. My Wool & Hoop kits, supplies and first book, The New Crewel, which offers 30 of my original designs, 15 fun p rojects, and 16 classic embroidery stitches, will also be available for sale. The class is $65 and runs from 10:30am -12:30pm. All skill levels welcome. Sign up online at OneStrangeBird.com. For more information, call 773.276.4420.
Please, share this news with your crewel-loving friends in the Chicago area.
And, thank you!
