I've been threatening for a few weeks now. After wrangling with Paypal code, taking both my computers in and out of the shop a few times (happily, they are both fine and it didn't cost me an arm and a leg - thank you Brown Computers of Brattleboro), I am all set to say today...
Here's the new schedule for Kristin Nicholas' Getting Stitched on the Farm Classes for 2010:
JULY 31/AUGUST 2010
Blueberry Themed Knitting/Stitching Immersion Weekend featuring knitting and stitching, learning about sheep farming, learn how to work with color in your stitching, enjoy an old-fashioned hayride and eat lots of local wild blueberries, lamb and more.
Here's a piece of knitting that I embellished and added edges to. You'll learn how to do this and more.
Blueberry Themed Fabric Decoration Immersion Weekend featuring block printing on fabric, embroidery on fabric, and painting on fabric, a farm tour, a hayride and eating lots of wild blueberries and more.
The lampshade below is how I paint on fabric with textile paints. I'll be teaching you how.
Here are a couple pieces of fabric that I made with block printing. You'll make the blocks to print from and print some fabric to take home.
Knitting and Stitching Immersion Weekend featuring knitting, stitching, a farm tour, a hayride and eating lots of farm-grown food. If the sunflowers are still blooming (frost willing), we'll celebrate them. Local apples will be in their prime for a quick round of homemade cider making.
