New Class - Ice Cream Soda

In August we'll be having a mini Kate Dickerson Trunk Show and to celebrate, I'm holding a class with one of her darling designs, the Ice Cream Soda.  Below are the pictures of the finished canvas and the finished piece by my talented finisher - it went from fun to FANTASTIC!  You may want to turn yours into a framed piece for your breakfast nook or a pillow for your daughter's room.  Any way you do it, this canvas is sweet!  
The class will be held on Saturday, August 13 unless more of you prefer a week day - please let me know.  The class includes the hand painted 18 ct. canvas, stitch guide (with changes by me), threads, beads, needles, and of course instruction.   You'll need to bring a laying tool and stretcher bars or pre-order them so I'll have them on hand for you.  You can also bring any light or magnification you feel comfortable with. You'll learn mosaic stitch, laying threads, a variety of upright stitches, padding, gathering techniques and how to read your canvas for basketweave so you never lose your place again.    Deposit required so I can pre-order the canvas and threads, see below.   This class is suitable for any level of stitcher.
