Customizing Your Elephant UPDATED

I just noticed a fascinating class being offered at The Classic Stitch the end of July.   It is a line drawing of a fancy elephant that the teacher (Linda Coriossi) will help each class member customize to their own taste.   Everyone will pick the colors, the stitches and the embellishments that suit their personal style, guided by Linda to make it all painless and fun.  It sounds like a fascinating and different class.

The canvas is a Tapestry Fair design and Robin King worked on the guide so you know the stitch diagrams are going to be first rate.  I don't see the design on the Tapestry Fair website but they are well known for their classic elephant pieces.  Wish I was going to be there!

UPDATE:  Peggi from Tapestry Fair writes, "Hi Jane - This design isn't on the website, since it was done exclusively for Linda to use for classes. She taught this class in Phoenix at Family Arts, and it looked like a lot of fun for students who wanted a one of a kind canvas.'

    1. Good to know, Peggi. I wondered if it was an older design. Custom was it? Bet they had a blast growing their very own personal elephant.
