Needlepoint.Com’s 2019 Retreat

It’s hard to believe that it’s already time to start thinking about Needlepoint.Com’s 2019 Retreat. It feels like just yesterday that I was teaching the nativity at our last round of classes. We have a huge lineup of different offerings planned for next years classes. You certainly don’t want to miss out. The retreat takes place every March in Raleigh, NC, and spaces are already limited for 2019.

I will be teaching the Kirk and Bradley Manor House Friday March 15th, 2019. I’m super excited about this class. I’ve been stitching away on the backdrop and can finally share my progress. (Those of you who follow Needlepoint.Com on Instagram have probably seen my stories shared there!) Not only will we work on the backdrop (the house itself) during class, the canvas also comes with attachable winter windows. I can’t wait to get started on those- so many fun opportunities to use beads and embellishments and fun threads to bring them to life! How cute is that little wreath on the front door!? I know they are going to make the piece!

Saturday March 16th I’ll be teaching this Tea Party canvas. I know this is going to be such a fun class. I will be using a variety of different ribbons for the flowers (you all know that’s my favorite!) as well as lots of other fun specialty threads to bring this piece to life. I already have a background stitch in mind…. but you’ll have to follow along with my progress to see it!

I can’t believe that Nancy’s double sided Forrest Friends Father Christmas has already sold out- forcing us to add another section to meet the demand for the class! I think this may be my favorite of the three Vernon has designed. Love that emerald green, and those little critters couldn’t be sweeter. Knowing Nancy, she has some tricks up her sleeve to make really make those animals something special.

Just look at how gorgeous her original red one was!
