If you haven't had the pleasure, you will love working with Carolyn. She is a talented teacher and designer from Houston where you can find her resident at Chaparral Needlepoint. She started needlepointing when she was 11 and has worked in the needlepoint business for over 35 years. Her passion for the art of Needlepoint is evident in all of her many endeavors. She is a needlepoint teacher, an author of many stitch guides as well as several needlepoint books including Needlepointing Your Nest, Merry Needlepoint, Merry Easter Eggs, Teeny Tiny Stitches, Needlepoint Stitches: Field Guide to Birds and her newest book, Needlepoint Notebook; Stitches inspired by Carolyn's Travels. Her vision and creativity is awe inspiring. She definitely knows how to think outside the box.
If you want to take part in this incredible opportunity, here's how it works: You must sign up for 2 full days minimum; Friday & Saturday. (If you prefer a one hour one-on-one with her, call the shop to schedule a private lesson.)
You select a canvas you would like to work on with Carolyn from either your own stash or from the large selection the shop has to offer. Unfortunately, in the current environment, ordering a special canvas can only be limited to those in stock at the designer. Therefore, it is best if you don't rely on that.
A good quality picture of the canvas along with the mesh count, Artist name and design number, needs to be sent to the shop by May 15, 2021. We will send it to Carolyn for her to look over and contemplate an overall vision of the canvas. During class Carolyn will work with each individual so that they understand her vision of embellishment and will add or subtract as needed. Carolyn uses her extensive collection of Books to come up with the perfect stitches for the selected canvas area. If one doesn't exist, she will provide a graph. You will leave class with an expertly crafted creative plan that will help transform your canvas and creativity.
If you have any of Carolyn's books in your Library, please bring them with you.
Properly worn masks will be required by participants at all times.
Lunch will be provided!
