Lots of fun stitches like applique, trapunto, needle weaving, padded and other dimensional stitches. Great threads used include Planet Earth, Kreinik, Splendor Silk, Sea Grass, Wisper, Ribbon, Linen, Burmilana, overdyed floss, and more. Embellishments include buttons and beads.

EGA – TVA –> JUNE 24 – 26, 2016

THE MARRIOTT HOTEL
HUNTSVILLE, AL

PUMPKIN SPICED TEA – 2 DAYS

This fast-paced Autumnal design incorporates dimensional stumpwork and needle felting techniques. Needle felting is done directly on the canvas using silk roving as one technique. A second technique involves creating separate leaves felted on a separate piece of canvas structured with DMC memory thread and then added to the foundation canvas after felting is completed. Single- and multi-needle methods will be taught.

Dimensional vines are created by separating and covering cotton cording. The cording is manipulated as it is covered and laid across the bottom area of the teapot.

Framing borders are created with a bargello wave variation and a leaf variation coming together at corners created with layered stitches.
