Sandy Arthur Class at Rittenhouse Needlepoint

Filed under: Beading and Ribbon-Sandy Arthur, Rittenhouse Needlepoint

Yesterday, Linda and I made a trip to Rittenhouse Needlepoint for some threads. I enjoyed helping Linda find silk threads to replace cotton floss for a project of hers. The subtle variations in color are endless. Luckily, Rittenhouse has a variety of silks to choose from and we are lucky to be so close to the store.

I picked up 2 skeins of new threads they stock now but that’ll be the subject of another post.

What I want share here are the demo samples of what we’ll learn during Sandy Arthur’s classes on beads and ribbons the first weekend in April. We’re (Linda and I) not taking the third class on hairdos. Nor are we following her to Stitch-Stash in Rehoboth, DE for a lovely red, white, and blue basket although the condensed pilot class regarding “Conventional Techniques Using Unconventional Resources” sounds intriguing. There is probably room in all classes if you are interested-just call the store (s). And, here’s a link to Sandy’s blog: sandyarthur.blogspot.com or http://sandyarthur.blogspot.com/2019/01/face-2-face-appearances-time-for-us-to.html?m=1

This will be my first classes with Sandy and I’m sure I’m going to enjoy them as Sandy is just a fantastic lady and she knows beads and ribbons!!

On my way home from our vacation (with my husband) in Westerly, Rhode Island, I stopped in Stitch By Stitch in Larchmont, N.Y. It’s right off 95 and was a great point to stretch our legs. A nice group of ladies were sitting about stitching working on some fun canvases.

I picked up the booklet, Patchwork of Peace. Another piece that I want to get to eventually!

Great selection of threads, canvases, and supplies. Also, a well lit store with good space for classes. I’ve been watching for the right class, teacher, project, and date to align so I can join them. Some day!
