Our next Region educational event will be an online class with Lorene Salt teaching her Bargello Muse. This online class will begin January 2, 2018.
Lorene obtained her teaching credentials through the Embroiderers’ Association of Canada’s Canvaswork Correspondence Courses. Her designs have been recognized with awards at both EAC and ANG seminars. Lorene’s design style continues to evolve as she loves to watch a design come alive through the exploration of color and texture. A graduate of Ryerson Polytechnical Institute in the Fashion Merchandising and Design program, Lorene is a skilled sewer. She is also an avid beader and jewelry maker and some of these elements show up in her designs from time to time. Lorene belongs to the Embroiderers’ Association of Canada, the American Needlepoint Guild and the Embroiderers’ Guild of America.
Bargello Muse, a beginner/intermediate Bargello, is a study of a variety of Bargello patterns, some traditional, some contemporary and some on the diagonal. The design is stitched on 18 count mono canvas and the stitched area is 11 1/2“ x 5 3/8”. Threads used are DMC #5 Perle Cotton, Finca #5, Perle Cotton, Kreinik #1/16” Ribbon, Kreinik #8 Braid, Rainbow Gallery Neon Rays +, Fyre Werks and Colour Complements hand-dyed #5 Perle Cotton. The student will learn eight different Bargello patterns as well as a layered border. There will be four very explicit lessons that will be made available every 2 weeks.
Registration for all Metropolitan Region members will open on April 21, 2017 and close on October 27, 2017. The registration fee is $35 which includes a pdf of the instructions. A supply list and thread selection suggestions will be provided upon registration.
