Advanced Applique' Class

Just returned home after completing my third Diploma class at the Royal School of Needlework in San Francisco, California. The above picture is the view from the hotel . . . the weather was beautiful, not that we had time to enjoy it.

This class was Applique, I have never done applique, so it was all new to me. I loved the class and my tutor was wonderful. There were six ladies in my class, one doing advanced silk shading, one doing advanced tapestry shading with goldwork and three doing stumpwork. We had a great class and everyone completed their projects. Now we wait for our assessments.

The design is my own funny creation!

If you are a member of the American Needlepoint Guild, check out the article beginning on page 16 about the Royal School of Needlework.

Next class will be blackwork in the spring.

You did a marvellous job with this, I really like the design. Congratulations.

The class sounds like it was so interesting with all those different techniques.

How do I find out about RSN classes in SF in the future?

MissesStitches - You can go to the Royal School of Needlework website for the contact person in England to get more information about the classes offered in San Francisco. They will be teaching classes again in the spring and fall of 2012 again.
