Autumn Kaleidoscope 2 day class with prework. 

Feb. 8th & 9th 2017 (Wed. & Thurs.)

The colour palette is Autumn colours of orange, yellow, copper, purple and turquoise.

Stitched size: 9-1/4” x 9-1/4” on 18 count Black mono canvas

“Autumn Kaleidoscope” is a study in String Art and “Spirograph” type stitches. When the design is finished it begins to take on the look of shards of coloured glass, which one would see while looking through a Kaleidoscope. The student will put the Star Stitch/Smyrna grid in place as pre-stitching. There are over 50 different stitches including various types of Jessicas, Amadeus, Sprats Head, Balloon, Waffles, and Chilly Hollow in this piece. Techniques include Bargello, Diaper Patterns, and Laid Fillings. The piece is further embellished with Swarovski crystals and pearls. This class will appeal to those students who would like to try new techniques while challenging themselves by mastering complex canvaswork stitches. This is for the Intermediate/Advanced stitcher.

“Mardi Gras” started out as a sampler and took on a life of its own! I started by stitching a Smyrna border using an overdyed thread. I then filled in each section with a different stitch or technique. Stitches include Herringbone, Oriental, various types of Jessica, Mistake stitch, Amadeus, Sprats Head, Balloon, Snowflake, Waffle and Pinwheel. Techniques include Blackwork, Four-way Bargello, Diaper Patterns and Laid Fillings. The piece is further embellished with Swarovski crystals and Pearls. This is a fun piece to stitch and the student is introduced to Intermediate and Advanced stitches while exploring fun techniques. The project is stitched using Anchor #5 Perle Cotton, DMC #5 Perle Cotton, Rainbow Gallery Splendor, Neon Rays, Neon Rays +, Flair, Vineyard Silk, Fyre Werks and Kreinik #8, #12 Braid and Threadworx Overdyed #8 Braid.
