A Sweet Piece

Mary Susan just finished up her piece that she will be teaching at our retreat, Needlepoint in New England, April 27-29, 2018.

She did a beautiful job, tackling a lot of challenges in the piece.  She not only tackled them . . .she CRUSHED them!


You’ll learn a ton in this class.  Raised fishbone. . .shaped Buttonhole . . .a new beading technique . . .and so much more.  I love the dark green leaves.  I can’t reveal all her secrets, but all I can say about those leaves is that it’s a technique I’ve never thought of.  Pretty hard to come up with something new.

Don’t worry if you’ve never worked with silk ribbon.  This technique is super easy.  Working with ribbon is different than working with a thread . . .but not necessarily harder.  Just different.  I’ll just say that silk ribbon pairs very well with a glass of Chardonnay.  LOL!

I wish needlepoint photographed better.  No matter what I do with a photo editing program it never does the stitching justice.  This jar is entirely beaded.  And boy does is shine and shimmer!  Mary Susan loves her beading!  But don’t let that scare you off.  This technique is much faster than regular beading.

The little bee is so adorable.  This piece is so beautifully stitched.  So sweet  . . .so fabulous.

I hope you can join us at our retreat.  You can call the shop to sign up or click here to sign up online.
