Am all packed and we leave at 8am tomorrow..... conference here I come.
The NZ Embroiderers Guild Conferences are held every two years, and it is a great chance to catch up with friends from all round the country. And for someone like myself who lives in a small country town the Merchants Mall is like finding  treasure trove.
I added up and I have been teaching almost 30 years now, at guild, regional and this will be the 3rd National Conference I have taught at.
I am teaching the little bags on Monday next. then Tues-Thursday  will be my last workshop, I teach and this is what I am teaching.

I have designed a count thread mat with reticello work in the centre and named the workshop " Shades of Monet" we are using the lovely hand dyed fabric with matching threads from Jane Van Kuelen and everyone will be able to select a pack in the colour of their choice. I hope with three days their pieces will be well on the way by the end of the time. I will report back after I get home on  July 16th.

What a beautiful piece and you chose such gorgeous fibers and fabby to show it off. I envy those lucky stitchers who will have the chance to take the class.

Your class is so lucky to have such an experienced teacher, Lee! Have a wonderful conference and I'll look forward to hearing all about it when you return in mid-July...

That is such an amazing piece you'll be teaching :)
