Introducing two fun & fresh sessions from DMC
8:00 AM Go-3D with DMC’s Memory Thread
Alice Okon, noted needlework designer, will go beyond couching and show you how she creates beautiful 3-dimensional effects on Associated Talents, Kelly Clark and Labors of Love canvases. Come and see how Memory Thread is shaped, formed and twisted to create incredible dimensional effects and trim. Ask any questions you may have about working with Memory Thread. Free samples will be provided.
8:30 AM Teaching New Stitchers – In Half the Time
Attracting and encouraging new stitchers is vital to the success of our industry. Come learn how an old technique is new again and provides the advantage of creating a beautiful piece of needlework in half the time. Alice Okon, noted needlework designer, will demonstrate how stitching the Half Cross Stitch with Pearl Cotton on Aida is a great way to encourage new and lapsed stitchers to pick up a needle. A sample beginner kit and fresh and fun beginner designs will be provided. This session is relevant for both needlepoint and counted thread shop owners.
