Blog #18

Thursday,  31 October 2013 ~

Preparations and final pricing for the lovely day this is planned for the 14th of March next year have been made.

Just in case you have not heard via any other means, needlework designer, Ellen Chester of 'With My Needle' (& her husband, Tom) are coming to stay at our home for a few days before beginning a tour of Australia and New Zealand.  Keith and I are so looking forward to their visit.

One of her holiday days Ellen has graciously given up to teach one of her beautiful designs - Fruit of the Vine Sampler Huswif.


Noted Designer.  Respected Tutor.
Only two of many titles which apply to Ellen.
Her needlework designs all have
her very distinctive signature.
Her wonderful original sampler inspired pieces
of needlework contain historical motifs
- many of them Quaker motifs -
and her reproduced historical samplers
and projects are from antique pieces
in her private collection.


Treat yourself to a fabulous day
of needlework enjoyment and relaxation
with Ellen Chester at a great location

Learn beautiful new stitches and techniques

Create an elegant, decorative needlework piece
that will become an heirloom of tomorrow

Meet a highly respected designer and tutor
