I was SO excited today when I read Cindy's newsletter ~ Sit 'n Stitch is hosting a weekend with Elizabeth Ann Talledo of Dames of the Needle / Finger Work in September (10th-12th 2010).

The project is nothing less than spectacular (as if Elizabeth would teach anything but...). It is a 2 day finishing class with pre-stitching.

The prestitching kits will be mailed the end of July. The project finishing materials will be given out in class. Space will be limited. Students will pre-stitch the three panels with Cross Stitch over one and two, French Knots, Tent Stitch over one, Couching, Eyelet Stitch, Long Arm Cross and Alycia Lace. In class students will construct the 8" x6" three sided Etui. Students will create the ruler and scissor sheaths and cover the matte board with silk lining fabric and linen. They will Rouche the ribbon to the sheaths and hand sew the pieces together.

The first day September 11, 2010 from 1p-5p with Liz - students will cut and adhere interfacing to the lining fabric. They will also start constructing the ruler and scissor cases and apply the Rouched silk ribbon.

The second day September 12, 2010 from 9a-1p with Liz -the students will use double sided tape to attach the silk lining fabric and linen to the matte board panels. They will then hand sew the pieces together to construct the etui.

This class will held at Rancho San Rafael Recreation Center in Glendale, Ca., take 134 east to the 2N freeway exit Mountain, take right @light which is Rancho San Rafael go up hill past two stop signs, on left is the recreation center parking, we will have balloons and sign showing that's where it is.
