Anna Pearson Goes Shadow

The British needlepoint designer and teacher Anna Pearson has been rather busy!  She's exploring what she calls shadow stitching, which we in the USA usually call light coverage needlepoint.

Her retreats sound lovely and I bet her classes are, too.  I do find it fascinating that she's starting to work light coverage stitches on painted canvas, much as many Americans do.  That's not generally the British needlepoint style.  Keep up the good work, Anna!  We need lots of choices to attract the broadest audience to the world of needlepoint.
