Robin’s Greatest Hits is typically a 2-day workshop-type class exploring Robin’s favorite techniques and stitches: Ribbons, Beading, Bullions, composite stitches, as well as many helpful hints to enhance your needlepoint. We will be breaking this down into 4 sessions so you can attend one or all.
We will work on blank canvas using assorted Ribbons, Beads and Threads. There will be a detailed color handout with photos and diagramed charts. You will refer to your new-found knowledge again and again.
