Hearts for You by Denise Harrington-Pratt

Registration Deadline: Jan. 31, 2020

Our Group Correspondence Course Hearts for You with Denise Harrington Pratt is an opportunity for the student to learn a variety of finishing techniques for use with counted thread work and to create a lovely four-piece set of needlework accoutrements. The counted thread embroidery in the pieces is basic, using cross stitch, backstitch, and attached beads. This is so students can focus on the finishing techniques once the embroidery is completed.
Many stitchers feel hesitant to attempt items that require finishing or construction, and the purpose of this class is to help students develop the skills and the confidence to delve into this important area of needlework. This class will open the door to the wonderful world of needlework finishing where all manner of stitched items can be constructed into useful and beautiful three-dimensional items.
This course has lots of detail, lots of photos, and lots of tips to help each student gain new skills and add new techniques to their needlework repertoire. Come and join us, won’t you?
