New Session Dates!

Come stitch on the jacketThe early bird gets the worm with the funny wrapping.

Friday August 8 – Monday August 11

Friday September 12 – Monday September 15

Friday September 26 – Monday September 29

Wendy left a note in the comments. I was too distracted by the news that done does not mean done to listen to the explanation of what exactly the funny wrapping is. Debbie explained this morning that it is an under-over-wrap-around the horizontal lines of the ceylon stitch. Debbie compared it to a straight-line spider rose type thing; Penny said that maneuver is a stitch used in tapestry weaving. Speaking of Penny, she’s answered the Earl Grey tea cupcake question for us:

Hi there! The Earl Grey cupcake has the tea as an ingredient. Originally, the recipe called for green tea powder, but Emily is a big fan of the Earl of Grey tea combined with chocolate, thus the cupcakes. The recipe comes from the bookVEGAN CUPCAKES TAKE OVER THE WORLD by Isa Chandra Moskowitz and Terry Hope Romero.

    The August dates are wrong since August 4 is a Monday and not a Friday. I think you may have been looking at July instead of August for the dates.

    Congratulations on passing the first anniversary of the jacket project. It looks like you had a very fun session. But I’m also excited to see my columbine on the blog. :)

    I’m looking forward to returning in September for more stitching.
    Were there any sessions scheduled in July or August?
    I couldn’t find any dates mentioned in past blog entries — but I doubt you’re all taking the Summer off! (I can’t attend myself in July or August, but I had a friend ask.)
    Happy Anniversary & congratulations on all the progress!

    There aren’t any formal dates scheduled in July due to the holiday and other issues for Jill. However, if your friend has a group of people who want to come and stitch, it’s certainly worth contacting Jill to see if something can be arranged. And returning stitchers who are in the area should certainly get in touch if they want to come and stitch again as they try to work things out for experienced people to add to the work on the jacket (or the lace, hint, hint).

    The dates listed do include August — as Jill said she fixed the August session date and it’s possible to accomodate people the week leading up to that weekend as well.

    It was a fun but busy session, at least on Saturday while I was there. Not only did we have interns and previous interns, but the sampler guild visited and some of the Trustees came by as well since it was the day of their annual meeting.

    It really is amazing to see how different things look after a year and hopefully you’ll enjoy the progress when you see it in September.
