June McKnight is back in house to teach August 8th & 9th !!!
Back by popular demand, the very talented and effervescent June McKnight is coming back to The Needleworks. June is a highly renowned instructor with many years of experience teaching students to stitch at all levels as well as being well-known as the author of many wonderful needlepoint books (Secrets being her newest publication).
June continues to be a favorite in our store and a frequently requested visiting teacher for good reason… last spring June delighted and amazed us with her needlepoint instructions at our Mackinac Island retreat for Charley Harper's “Upside/Downside” and Julia's Grand Hotel Limoge box. She also visited our store and taught the “Boo Kitty” class, sharing tips from her “Spooky Stitches” instructional book.
This time around, June will be helping her students with a new Needle Deeva floral canvas. She will teach us tricks about stitching on the diagonal and how to work with dimensional stitches. Students will learn how much depth and embellishment can be added to a canvas without there being too much. There will be bead work, some ribbon work and open stitch work as well. This whimsical, yet elegant canvas is now on display in the shop so please stop in to check it out.Class Fees:
