We had so much fun with Carolyn last year that we asked her back. Come see what all the excitement is about.
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, and now her newest book, Needlepoint Stitches: Field Guide to Birds. Her vision and creativity is awe inspiring. She definitely knows how to think out side the box.
If you want to take part in this incredible opportunity, here's how it works: You must sign up for 2 days minimum; Thursday & Friday or Friday & Saturday. You can certainly sign up for an additional day, and if you decide to the cost is an additional $225.
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. We can even special order a specific canvas for you, if desired.
A good quality picture of the canvas needs to be sent to the shop by July 1, 2019. We will send it to Carolyn for her to look over. Carolyn will provide each participant with a guide that will embellish your canvas in such a way as to bring it to life. During class Carolyn she 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 a guide that will transform your canvas and creativity.
Lunch is provided!
