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

Location:

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.

French Savonnerie Rug in 1/12th scale - Work in Progress


The medallion for a Dollhouse Miniature Savonnerie rug in 1/12th scale is finished!
Just a small reminder: 40 count silk gauze, DMC floss, size of the finished rug will be 11" x 13".


Next step will be establishing the border. It is one huge border! I am charting the rug along as I need to stitch.


Probably it will take a couple of months just to finish this border. Sigh!

See you later!

Happy weekend!
Natalia
