Very Berry Finishing – taught by Linda Stolz (Erica Michaels Designs)
Berries, berries, everywhere from Erica Michaels Designs! One of the easiest “smalls” to finish, we’ll talk about the differences in stitching and finishing the silk versus linen berries, review basic assembly, plus lots of show-and-tell with a variety of fun top treatments. You’ll get an exclusive linen berry chart with a Nashville theme – plus everything you need to make your own custom wool pins. No pre-class stitching necessary.
Sampler Book Finishing – taught by Linda Stolz (Erica Michael Designs)
Do you have your copy of The Sampler Book – perhaps from several years ago, or just recently? Are you working on these pages? Just getting started? Even if you have only some of this project stitched, you can benefit from this workshop! If you don’t have The Sampler Book, you can get it from most retailers.
Silk Gauze 101 – Create! – taught by Linda Stolz (Erica Michaels Designs)
This adorable little hornbook is embellished with a bit of stitching on 40ct silk gauze, combined with little bits and pieces to create your own one-of-a-kind miniature collage. Whether you are a beginner or experienced with gauze, you will find it easy to work this quick design. A companion design for 30ct gauze is also included, so you can choose which you prefer for your class time – both designs are small and ideal for a quick finish!
So Let’s Finish the Stitching!!
Susan Greening Davis has been a creator of “self-finishing” projects, WITHOUT A SEWING MACHINE, for over 45 years!
Simple, slick and professional your finishing will be!
Susan has written a small booklet full of tips and info (included in class). She has created a checklist (included in class) of what you need on hand, AND a special “fold-up” bucket (included in class) that you will use to keep your “stuff” together! This cute red bucket has a piece of banding that you will stitch “my finishing bucket” and secure it on…..NO safety pins anymore!
Come join Susan for the class that you will USE over and over and over and over and love your finishing! ****always a few surprises, too!
I started hosting these retreats because of the members of the group Cross Stitch Club Originals of which I am the main admin. If you are not already a member and would like to attend this retreat, please join here:
and then also join the group I specifically set up for this retreat:
I know it may seem ridiculous to have to join 2 groups to attend this retreat, but one of the things that makes my retreats so much fun is the fact that because we interact as a group online, when it comes to being in a room full of 150-200 people, you don’t walk in feeling like a stranger and not knowing anyone.
It does make a difference and just makes it so much more fun. And because so much planning goes into these retreats, having a group specifically for the retreat helps me to keep organized and make it so great.
If you are not on Facebook, but would like to attend the retreat, please send me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org and I can get you signed up.
Based on attendance of prior years and people returning, do not wait too long to reserve a spot with at least partial payment. The attendance for previous retreats has been 150-200. Our maximum capacity for this event is 200 and so far there are approximately 128 spots already reserved. So don’t delay and get left out! I hope to see you there! Any questions, please feel free to send Fae Kuhn a PM or email at email@example.com.
