Halloween Hooter

Whaaaaat?  Halloween?  It's barely the 5th of July!

But yes, it's time to think about the next Mystery Class.  If we are going to have canvases in time to start class August 23rd we need to plan now.

So, without further delay, I am pleased to announce that the next Mystery Class after the mermaid will be the Halloween Hooter by dede.

What a riot this guy is.  So many fun details ready to come to life.  I love that it is painted on yellow 18ct mono.   Do you think I will do an open background?  Hmmmmm?

There will be four lessons for this mystery.  You may sign up to take the class in person or long distance.

The cost of the class is the cost of the canvas $216 plus $15 per lesson plus the bag of threads beads etc needed for that lesson.  It's going to be a fun adventure.  As I type this, the ideas are brewing.

Classes will be August 23, September 13 and 27th and October 18th.

Sign up online here or by calling us at 410.296.0405.

Happy Halloween!

La Sirena

We started a new mystery class, Lulu's La Sirena, at the shop today!  I love the mystery classes.  They are fun and keep me focused on one project. (Or 4 depending upon how you count.)

Today's class was quiet and laid back.  Lulu Mypinkturtle's beautiful mermaid is already coming to life.  We stitched her face which gives her so much personality.

Her hair is flowing strands of Bouclé.

The background is a fun riff on Bargello Swirls that creates wonderful waves flowing through the sea.  If you look closely you will see that half of each swirl is worked in Petite Silk Lamé Braid and the other half is the second color of our new Color Dreams over dyed Floche.  I'm having fun with this new line of threads!

There are certain traditions that signify the start of any Mystery Class at Bedecked and Beadazzled.  

There is the limited edition snap tray from Carol Eix.  This one is super cool with the little pink trim. Love, love, love it.  Snap trays are only available to those stitching the mystery.

 There's also the fun scissor fob designed for the class.  The skeleton fish made everyone smile today.

More canvases will be arriving in a few weeks.  If you would like to join the party, give us a call at 410.296.0405 and we'll do the rest.

Now, if I still have your attention, I have a question.

I'm planning next year's mystery classes.  Traditionally I do several non seasonal followed by a Fall-Halloween and a Winter canvas.  What do you prefer?  Should I stick with that format or do you prefer all non seasonal.  There are so many great canvases;  I want to stitch them all!

Leave me your comments as to you preference and I'll take it from there.

See you soon.
