Needlepoint Finishing Class with Pat Mazu

Derby Stitchers ANG Chapter Presents Pat Mazu Class

This past weekend I was fortunate enough to attend a class on finishing taught by Pat Mazu and sponsored by the Derby Stitchers of Louisville, KY.

We had a nice crowd and everyone was enjoying themselves. It seemed that everyone was successful in finishing some things they brought.

I brought some of my Nativity pieces designed by Joan Thomasson and a stitch guide by Debby Powell Franklin. There were picture frames, small stocking ornaments, large stockings, stand ups, pillows, eggs, and on and on.

I think the biggest thrill experienced by many was successful cord making. We made our own cord and rope for the items we brought. We have a wide variety of “tools” from which to choose to make these cords.

The atmosphere and camaraderie was very stimulating. We all got to know each other a little more and enjoyed our meals together and helping each other out with our projects.

Pat is an excellent teacher and if you ever have the opportunity to be a part of one of her classes seize the moment! The chapter has already invited her to return!

Check out the pictures below. There’s one of me with an iron… who knew! LOL

Now, however, I must get back to work and my own class preparations.

Stitch with a Smile!
