My Day at ANG Seminar!

This was my selected class at ANG Seminar in Myrtle Beach; Empire of the Sun by Toni Gerdes. I was thrilled that I got my first choice!

We worked on a panel at a time, learning new stitches and some new tips and tricks. A few of the girls at the shop always ask me “so why do you take classes so often?” To learn, I answer! and secondly, it is being with everyone. It is the journey for me, not necessarily the destination.

I think that this was my favorite! Pattern couching using 2 colors of silk.

Toni was lending a little helping hand to my seatmate. I was thrilled to be in class with Dinny and she has been a stitching mentor for me for a very long time. And a great person to hang out with!

On Thursday during seminar, the Life Patron Luncheon is held! A great lunch, a wonderful gift of a hand made scissors block made with local woods and then a speaker, talking about samplers of years gone by stitched by very young girls of the “low country.”

Thursday evening was nothing exciting, since at that point I had decided I was leaving earlier than originally planned…so I was packing and planning. I am sad that I left early, but glad that I did and my thoughts and prayers go out to all of the Carolinians (is that a word?)

About Vicky

Needlepoint, morning noon and evening! what could be better than this? I work on the computer in the daylight hours editing stitch guides and drawing stitches that you will see in the next Needlepoint Now for your stitching pleasure! In between this, there is time for taking pictures of my stitching adventures, Facebook and writing stitch guides for canvas that I am stitching for Needle Deeva, Maggie, Ruth Schmuff and others. Mostly needlepoint you ask? well we will talk about my cats Sylvester and AlleyCat, better known as "the brat". Of course I can't forget Felix who was the love of my life for over 14 years. He broke my heart as he departed for the Rainbow Bridge last year. Oh did I mention baseball?

  1. I’m glad you had the opportunity to learn, have fun and relax all at the same time. The water Mother Nature is denying Californians is so disasterous for the East Coasters. I echo your last words for the Carolinians.
