My Workshop "Pull Out A Stool..." at the Portland Miniature Show 2014

As you know from my previous post, this Fall, September 13-14, I am planning to attend the Portland Miniature Show as a dealer first time.

I am also planning to give a workshop that is called "Pull Out a Stool..." I initiated this workshop mainly for the beginners who has never tried needlework in miniature, has a lot of questions and doesn't know where to find the answers.

This class is for those who would like to learn magnificent world of petit pointing in miniature. While working on stitching a little rose for a dollhouse footstool, students will learn working with silk gauze and silk thread as well as learn and practice the stitches that are used in miniature petit pointing.

Tips on how to make the back side of your work neat will be shared, and it will be shown how with different count of silk gauze and a little bit of imagination to use the same design for different projects in different scales. The dollhouse miniature footstool will be likely finished during the class.

Class size is limited to only 6 students.

Cost: $50.00

When: Friday, September 12, 2014

Time: 4:00 pm to 8:00 pm


DoubleTree by Hilton Hotel Portland (across from Lloyd Center)
1000 NE Multnomah Street
Portland, Oregon 97232

What to Bring: Students need to bring scissors for embroidery and magnifiers, if needed.

Hi Natalia! I meant to comment on a post I saw here about the pattern of stitches to make the petit point needlework neat and now I can't find that post! I read your diagram and the Reasons for the different methods and NOW I understand!!! Thank you... it had confused me before! I will make more attempts now that I am wiser! The tent stitch finally makes sense to me! I really appreciate the reasons for the different results!
