I've been thinking about developing my own cyber classes for quite a while now. I suspect there must be quite a lot of stitchers like me out there: stitchers who LOVE stitching new projects but HATE the idea of packing everything up and travelling away from home (for a variety of economic, domestic, and logistical reasons that we all can relate to.) And now, thanks to the wonderful techno-marvelous society we live in, what better way to experience the best of both worlds - stitching AND staying home in your comfy chair - than by taking a cyber class....
Soooooo, my stitchy friends, the time has come to announce the very first Laura J. Perin Designs Cyber Class offering:
It's called "CORSAGE".
It's an 8.5" x 8.5" piece done on Santa Fe green 18 ct. mono canvas. I've created six different colorways that the stitcher can choose from: blue (shown above), pink (shown below), purple, turquoise, orange, and red.
Since one of the main things I enjoy most about stitching is making personal choices in everything I stitch, I want to provide that same design fun for the stitchers who sign up for this class. As the project unfolds, stitchers will have several choices to make to personalize their piece. One of the big choices will be deciding which flower to put in the middle box - either a gardenia (shown above) or a dogwood (shown below). (And if you should decide to do your flower in a color other than ecru the flower becomes a rose or camillia - is that magical or what?!?)
Anyway, the Cyber Class registration period runs from October 16th to November 30th of 2010. The class will start on January 15, 2011 (after all the holiday hoopla has died down and stitchers are ready to get back to stitching in the new year). I expect the class to run about 4 to 6 weeks, with email "lessons" every week.
