Happy Monday, everyone! I hope your week is off to a great start! Today I wanted to share a quick post about this adorable Burnett & Bradley Warm Winter Mitten online class, now available at Needlepoint.Com.
We’ve been working hard to put together a group of classes geared towards newer stitchers or stitchers who haven’t done a ton of decorative stitches before. After all, the more needlepointers the merrier! This class is one of my personal favorites: with only three different colors in the design, this canvas has such a classic look. It would make the perfect addition to your holiday decorations- and best of all, you can leave this design out all winter long!
The online class comes with painted canvas (18 count!), threads, a printed stitch guide, needles, a Needlepoint.Com logo bag and access to our exclusive online videos. It really has everything you need to sit down and stitch right away. Plus, with so much instructional information it would certainly make a great gift for a dear friend.
You don’t want to miss out on this one… only a few kits remain!
Hey everyone! Happy Sunday!
You may remember a few weeks ago when I shared our new Frosty Stitches online technique class at Needlepoint.Com. It teaches you all about stitches for snowmen and all different kinds of snow. Well, today I wanted to share how adorable they look displayed on this frosty wreath I made!
This was such an easy little DIY project! All I needed to display the ornaments was two spools of black and white striped ribbon, a styrofoam wreath, and some quilter’s pins.
I started by tacking the ribbon to the back of the styrofoam wreath using a quilter’s pin. Next I wrapped the ribbon around and around until I made it all the way back to where I started. So simple! (Best part is there’s no glue needed!)
Next I (carefully!) tacked each of the six snowmen to the wreath with quilters pins and tucked their individual hangers in behind the ornaments themselves. I tied a big bow and tacked that down in the empty space at the bottom of the wreath, too!
What do you all think? I love that these little guys aren’t super Christmasy too. I think the black and white is a fun alternative to the typical red and green you see so much around the holidays. They could definitely stay out all winter long in my house!
The rest of our online technique classes can be found below:
PS. If you haven’t had a chance to enter the Stitch Style Blog & Lycette Designs giveaway below, it’s not too late!
When Joan Lohr brought in this adorable two sided Susan Roberts Patriotic Santa in for finishing, we just knew we had to have her teach it at the shop! She will be teaching this piece nationally at Dallas Needlepoint Market in a few weeks, and we’re so excited to have her bring her class back to us afterwards. Isn’t it precious? I’m really thinking I’m going to have to take the class and stitch one for myself!
If you’ve never taken a class with Joan, now is the time to do it! She is an absolute wealth of knowledge (having taught all over the country) and is such a patient teacher. Not to mention, she is so creative! I know you will have a fabulous time in class with her!
She will be teaching this little guy on Wednesday September 28th from 10-3 at Needlepoint.Com (in Raleigh, North Carolina). Class is $185 and includes lunch!
Spaces are limited, so call today to sign up: 919-828-5538.
If you can’t join us, but would like to order a kit, you can do so online here.
Kits will ship on September 28th after class is over!
A finishing update on Charlie’s Christmas Ornament… It finally came back from the finisher this week and it couldn’t be any more perfect!
In case you all couldn’t tell from the picture above… Charlie was just as excited as I was when his needlepoint round came back!
I just knew that this ornament would be the perfect way to commemorate Charlie entering our lives. We were able to have the finisher put his name and the year we got him on the back of the ornament.
If this is the first time you are reading about this particular piece, I actually wrote much more about it in a previous blog post which you can find here (including the stitches and threads that I used on this canvas).
I know I’ve said it before, (and I’m sure I’ll say it again!) but I just can’t imagine my life without this sweet little guy!
If you would like to purchase this ornament (or others like it) they can be found online here. Simply select “kit in our favorites” to have fun threads like the ones used above selected to stitch with!
Happy Saturday, everyone! I know I told you all that I had an exciting announcement last night, so here it is! Remember the Santa’s Beard online class we launched a few months back at Needlepoint.Com? Well, we’ve done it again!
I wanted to introduce you all to our new “Frosty Stitches” online class. The class is jam packed with different stitches for snowmen, snowy landscapes and snowy skies. Although all stitches are pictured on little snowman faces, this technique class does an excellent job at explaining where else the stitches might be well suited to use.
The best part about the class is that your working canvas can be finished into six little ornaments. I think they’re one of the cutest series we’ve ever designed!
Stitch one for each member of your family for Christmas gifts this year.
The total for the class is $125, which includes a canvas with six mini snowmen faces, a threadpack, a printed stitch guide, a Needlepoint.Com logo bag and online video access for an entire year to the videos you will need to complete your class. An unbeatable price for six ornaments, if you ask me!
The class is exclusive to Needlepoint.Com and can be found online here!
I know you will love stitching our Frosty Stitches Online Class, without ever leaving the comfort of your own home!
There are so many exciting projects going on at Needlepoint.Com these days! Today I wanted to share three new online classes we have just launched with you all. Kirk and Bradley’s “Ho, Ho, Ho”, Burnett and Bradley’s Red and Green Sailboat and Burnett & Bradley’s Ballerina Tutu are now all available with online video access. I think they’re some of our cutest ones yet!
Every online class purchased comes with a canvas, a thread pack, a Needlepoint.Com logo project bag, and a printed stitch guide. Best of all, each class includes round the clock access to all videos needed to complete your class. Login access to the videos is good for a whole year! All three of these classes are geared towards the Advanced Beginner, and are perfect for anyone looking for an easy way to learn a few new stitches.
Designing online classes is without a doubt one of my favorite parts of my job! I love to connect with stitchers from all over the country… and the best part is that you all never having to leave the comfort of your homes!
PS. If you all liked these new online classes, be sure to check back in tomorrow for the launch our newest (and cutest!) class yet! Get excited!
