Zecca Retreat 2017!

It's time!  It's time!

It's time to plan for Zecca Retreat 2017.  This is the big event of the needlepoint year.  Karen, of Zecca fame, and I have so much fun planning this event.

First she designs a canvas just for us.

Then I write a stitchguide for it and plan goodies to go with it.

Then you come for a weekend, April 29th and 30th, of stitching fun with me and, drumroll please..... Karen Hennessey from Zecca!  How fun is that?

As with most of my classes this is a pretty informal class.  We hang out, stitch together, laugh and have a good time.  I walk you though the parts that may be a challenge and I'm here to answer questions.  We are very relaxed.

This year's canvas is called Friends which I think is the perfect theme for not only the Zecca retreat canvas but 2017 in general.  The canvas is actually pretty cheeky, it's a bird talking to a stature of a bird in front of a painting of a chicken hanging on a wall that is covered in bird wallpaper.  Really?  That's pretty funny.  Design size is 11.5 x 7.5 handpainted on 18ct.

All details are on the website.  Sign up fast as this class is always a sell out!
