Class and Teacher:  Granddaughter's Quilt by Catherine Jordan
Registration Period:  March 1 - April 30, 2016
CyberWorkshop Begins:  July 1, 2016
Proficiency Level:  Intermediate

This quilt-inspired design, worked with pulled and counted stitches explores the use of complementary color harmonies. A log cabin design is the basis for the design as eyelets, four sided stitch, and a variety of counted patterns are worked with the student's choice of color complements in a variety of saturations. This class brings it all together to learn how to select a pleasing complementary color palette and work a variety of stitches to enhance the coloring effects. Directions for a small individual square which can be worn as a lapel pin is included.

This new design is worked on 32 count linen. The finished design measures 7" x 7"

Class and Teacher:  Jewels of the Tsars by Susan Reed
Registration Period:  May 1 - June 30, 2016
CyberWorkshop Begins:  September 1, 2016
Proficiency Level:  Intermediate

Rubies, sapphires, and emeralds! Jewels take on a deep richness when hologram metallic ribbons are used to create variations of the marquise-cut gemstones. The smoothness of carefully laid Splendor silk adds a sleek contrast to the Vineyard smyrnas. A fern variation, bordered by whipped backstitch and filled with two stimulated jewel patterns, creates an elegant border that draws the eye to the corner jeweled motifs. With the addition of crescent variation, the "marquise cuts" convert to round gemstones. Nobuko variation frames the design.

This design is worked on #18 canvas. The finished design measures 7.25" x 8.15"

Class and Teacher:  Key to My Heart by Michele Roberts
Registration Period:  July 1 - August 31, 2016
CyberWorkshop Begins:  November 1, 2016
Proficiency Level:  Intermediate

This traditional raised and padded goldwork piece was designed to be the top of a box. The background as well as the key are studded with pearls and Swarovski crystals. A bit of passementerie that moves serves as the tassel to the hole in the key, and in fact, drapes over the edge of the box.

This motif is entirely worked in raised traditional goldwork. Types of gold used are pearl purl, bright check, twist, check thread, and Japan gold braid.

This design is worked on iridescent white #18 canvas. The finished design measures 5" x 7".
