The Friday, September 29th class is a thread painted summer landscape. Using Nancy’s anyone-can-do-it approach, you will learn how simple thread painting is. A zigzag or straight stitch are the only stitches necessary to create amazing thread painted designs. No artistic skill is needed so come join us for a day full of fun. Simple designs have been selected to boost your confidence right away with this painted summer landscape. There is a $15.00 supply fee for this class. The WSQ class fee is $65.00.

The Saturday, September 30th class is "Enhancing a Photograph Through Thread Sketching".
Many of us have a photograph we would love to enhance through thread but just aren’t sure how to go about it. In this workshop, working with one of Nancy's photographs of a too cute dog, you will where to print your photograph and how to enhance the photograph through thread sketching. By the end of the workshop you will be confident to transfer what you have learned on a photograph of your own.
