EAC Seminar 2009 Kingston, ON

It’s been a while since my last post…life interrupts.  Getting over a sinus headache, busy at work, muscle spasm in my neck and a mother in the hospital for a week.  Well I’m all better, it’s the weekend and my mom got home a couple of days ago and is feeling better. 

I had a good time at seminar.  My favourite part was the boutique.  Five different vendours had all kinds of threads, fabrics, patterns, beads and books available for purusal and purchase everyday!!  There isn’t a needlework shop of that magnitude in Halifax so it was a real treat and my only regret is not being prepared with a huge list of things that I wanted.  I’ll take a picture of my stash haul later (camera batteries are getting charged up).

The two classes that I took were great.  Carolyn Mitchell is a really nice person and a great teacher.  She made sure that we knew how to stitch the more complicated / out of the ordinary stitches and talked about the design so we would be prepared to work on it individually after we got home.  My second class was equally pleasant.  Sylvia Murariu also made sure we practised the stitches and talked about the use of rayon threads.  I would recommend both ladies as teachers, they definitely put thought into how to present the designs in a manner that will make it a good learning environment for students.

Here are the pictures of my class projects progress as of today.
