Textured Treasures

Thursday, April 30, 2015

I am super excited for a variety of reasons:
  1. We have booked our booth for the Alexandra Palace Knitting and Stitching Show in London, UK for October 2015!  Ally Pally here we come - I have REALLY missed doing this show.
  2. I have finished "10 Ways To Love" and just need to get some quality photographs so the chart can be assembled and kitted.  Sorry about the orientation, I seriously can't figure out how to orient this the right way as it is actually 'up and down' in the true image.
  3. I just purchased Mary Corbet's "Stitch Sampler Alphabet" and am truly stunned by her talent.  The chart comes as a searchable pdf with incredible photos and detail even when the images are expanded to greater than 150%.  I really recommend taking a look: Link to Mary Corbett's Stitch Sampler Alphabet page
  4. In less than a month I will be hosting Hazel Blomkamp when she arrives in Ottawa and will have the honour of taking her crewelwork class  "Dancing Threads".  This will be my first foray into crewelwork and a bit of a stretch for me, beyond the bounds of counted thread.

And now I am preparing two class proposals for the Embroidery Association of Canada's Seminar 2017.  With any luck, I will be able to report favorably on this in an upcoming missive.  Have a great week and take a break from your stitching to enjoy the beautiful weather.


Oh my goodness - I did not realize that I have not posted in over a year, I guess things just got away from me last year.  So there are two more brief notes, first I am happy to share that the new design "A Collected Decade" is ready for release as is Chris House's RSN winning design "A Whirlwind of Stitches".  Both are available in the 2015 catalog - just send me a quick note if you'd like a copy.

  • I'm taking her class as well but from Montreal and I'm so excited. By the way, I was in your Pulled Thread Miniature Ornate Carpet class at last year's Creative Festival and I've just finished it. You can find pictures here http://d1-d2.blogspot.ca/2015/05/miniature-ornate-carpet.html

  • Thank you so much for the comment on my blog! It's such a thrill to hear from the designer herself. We may well have met at the Olympia Show when I bought the kit. It was a long time ago now.
    I promise to get it framed this year and up on my wall!
