Registration is officially open for this year's online Curios Mystery Class. It's through Shining Needle Society - if you're not a member of SNS, you can join for free at Shining Needle Society. Above is a tiny part of my stitching - Waffles and Pinwheels, two of my favorite stitches!
You don't have to be a member to register for class - we can take care of getting you signed up for membership along with your registration -- just be sure to let me know you're "new"! I appreciate the people who've already registered - I can tell you the Mountain Haze and Turquoise Trail colorways are running neck and neck, followed closely by Prickly Pear. Along with Kelsch, the new Watercolours are very popular! Because of the numbers and all my travel in the next couple of months, I'll be ordering threads in "batches" to make kits ahead of time - I'll be shipping kits in the order people sign up so don't wait til the last minute, especially if you're requesting a drawn canvas. I'm already starting to draw them and they take a lot longer than last year's!
I decided to call the design "Curios" as the stitches fill the rectangular spaces that were inspired by a curiosity cabinet. I often struggle with naming a design so it's a relief to have finally decided on the title. I'm happy I've had positive feedback and appreciate the people who've told me they liked the name.
For people who've been interested in my "Serenity" class, I'll be teaching at Kelsey's Needle Krafts on March19-20. I'm looking forward to going to Northern Californian again - I spent a lot of time there with friends when I was in college in San Diego so it feels like going "home". I'll also be teaching at the end of September at Needle in a Haystack in Alameda, Ca - classes TBA.
Until next time (I'll soon be showing you my new releases for Nashville!)
