New Crewel News: From Marfa to Maine with "The Motif Collection" [UPDATE!]
New Crewel Workshops: UPDATE
Only Five Workshops To Go: Jacksonville, New Orleans, Houston, Austin and Marfa




It's been loads of fun traveling this summer across the country. Four weeks ago, we set out in our sky blue camper van to celebrate and promote all-things-crewel. We headed north and east with stops in Kansas City, Chicago, Cleveland, Providence, Portland and New York City. It's hard to believe that we only have one week left. We're now in St. Augustine, Florida and after tonight's workshop and book-signing in Jacksonville, we head back west with just a few more stops along the way: New Orleans, Houston and Austin. We'll end our tour on July 21 with a final workshop in Marfa at Wild Woolies.

If you haven't seen my my latest book, New Crewel: The Motif Collection, you can check it out here, or better yet, come to a workshop and pick up an autographed copy. Here's a list of the remaining New Crewel Embroidery Workshops:

Whether you're brand new to stitching or an advanced embroider, a New Crewel Embroidery Workshop is sure to be a perfect fit. I bring a trunk load of my newest crewelworks and plenty of copies of my latest book, New Crewel: The Motif Collection. So come and learn (or get refreshed on) some basic crewel stitches and then let me show you all of my new favorites, especially the super fun, 'spirograph' stitch from my new book. I'll also go over some crewel history, an explanation of materials, finishing techniques and pattern transfer tricks. Participants will receive all the supplies needed to get started -- linen fabric, wool thread, needles and a hoop. Workshop fees vary. Contact locations for details. My Wool & Hoop kits, supplies and books -- featuring my original designs, dozens of fun projects and over 20 embroidery stitches -- will be available for sale. The workshops are small and have been filling up quickly, so sign up today!

Many thanks,
Katherine
