A lavish but dainty miniature pin-cube with fresh blueberries on all six sides. Like a petifore. So sweet !!

Mother Of Pearl/Shell buttons attach to the bottom for rest on the side table in your stitching nest. Ahhh, appropriately stitched on Provence Lavender linen. Everything is included in this class kit. And Lunch!

“Antique Sampler Motif Biscornu”

A sweet bit of vintage sampler adorns this charming fifteen-sided biscornu. (French word for little pillow; tuffet) Complete class kits includes all fifteen motifs to be stitched on lambswool linen. Great class with lunch included.

A Stitching Cruise With Finesse Is Now Full!

2017 Stitchers’ Escapes Cruise to New England and Canada

What could be more enjoyable than a relaxing stitching cruise with Maureen Appleton-Sorenson and Jean Farish, along the Northeastern US coast from Boston to Nova Scotia. Both designers will present an exclusive design kit commemorative of our excursion. Seven days of fun shopping at various ports, stitching in two classes, a stitching lounge provided exclusively for our group, and of course the luxurious meals and beautiful and bountiful buffets and activities that Royal Caribbean Cruise Lines is famous for.

This cruise is full, but I just had to share my class with you to demonstrate what we will be stitching aboard the Serenade Of The Seas.

My special design will become a memoir of the most famous and quaint lighthouse @ Peggy’s Point, in the Halifax region. The detail of my design will take you back to this lighthouse for many years to come. Come stitch by the sea with us. Meet old and new friends, and those you didn’t even know you had. The comradery
of our stitching joins others who share this love of needle and floss. We’d love to sail and stitch with YOU.

Yes, this is fully booked, but it is certainly not to late to register for our 2018 Stitchers Escape Cruise in August from London, UK, to Oslo, Norway. Visits in Bruges, Belgium (the lace capitol of the world), and Hamburg, Germany as well. Pre-Cruise Extravaganza LONDON, with visits to The Royal School of Needlework and Downton Abbey (Highclere Castle), Tea & Textiles at The Victoria and Albert Museum. So much more. Please contact Jean Farish for complete details and registration.

I will be designing a class that will capture all four countries visited. I am a rosemaler, so of course have plans to rosemale our frame for this piece. Lace ??? endless ideas. Then London and Germany, you can only imagine.

Enjoy these few photos of my Boston-Halifax Cruise design in September, 2017, and only dream of my creations for the 2018 Excursion at Sea……… I will soon be posting snippets of my stitching in Euro…..

That’s absolutely correct….I have framed my sailing stitched design for my class aboard, in a ships porthole. I wanted them to envision the Halifax Harbor as we approach this lighthouse, and view the shoreline………..Wait til you see what I have in mind for the Euro Cruise in 2018.
Keep your needle threaded!

A Nice Touch Indeed…………………
