T Minus 60 hrs

That sounds like such a long time.  60 hours.  But when you are putting together a class for lots of ladies with 4 of the top names in NEEDLEPOINT it isn't so long at all.

Welcome to



April 17th -20th will find Tony Minieri, Meredith Willet, Beth Robertson and Suzanne Howren all teaching at the shop.  Four teachers, four days, ONE BIG EVENT!

Each student will have a different canvas and each of the four teachers will be making suggestions for how best to enhance the canvas with stitches and threads.  In addition, there will be 2 techniques demonstrated each day.  It's like 2 classes in one!

The classroom is set up;  it's cozy but I think will work well.  Canvases are mounted, threads are at the ready.  Students will be arriving Saturday morning.  We can't wait to see you all.

My canvas will be this one from Maggie — Muskoot Farm.  Now, I'm not a farm girl, but I do like red and orange and lavender buildings.  That's a pretty cool world.


I'll be reporting in as much as I can.  I'm taking the class too, so this will be twice the fun for me.

How wonderful for you to bring the needlepoint cosmic universe together, Ruth. Looking forward to hearing the reports. Love your Maggie canvas. Nice large areas and angled directions; great for perspective.

I'm not a farm girl, either, Ruth, but I love this canvas! I can't wait to see how you bring it to life! So looking forward to the big event starting Saturday!!!
