|Lupe, from Tapestry Fair|
So far I haven't found seen any online updates about new goodies from the St. Charles needlework show. So you'll have to make due with information about the next historical needlework class from Tricia Nguyen which she is teaching at Williamsburg this winter. Start reading about the new threads and the project at the September 21st entry, then come forward and stare at the new threads created for this project. Wonderful!
Ridgewood Needlepoint has a great photo of the new large Lee leather bag with small round canvas, suitable for a monogram.
The Point of It All has banker clips to hold a rolled canvas in position in case you prefer stitching "in hand" instead of putting your canvas on stretcher bars.
If you love threadwinders, you'll want to see what Monica has in her online store--little silvery ornate winders that look like a cross between snowflakes and Celtic crosses.
Tapestry Fair has posted photos of their two new Day of the Dead canvases on their website. These are licensed designs from the New Mexico artist Manual Salas. I just love Rosa but perhaps you prefer the floral patterns on Lupe (shown above)? Mexican culture is a mystery to me but I have a soft spot for their cheerful skeletons that celebrate Death and the love of life that lingers after we are gone.
Stay tuned for the latest as soon as my spies report in!
