The Knotted Needle

Needlepoint Thursday Afternoon

Open to everyone.  Bring any needlepoint project to class.  Learn new stitches, embellishments and have fun with others.

Instructor Bio: Becky Booth, owner. Becky has been doing needlepoint and embroidery since she was a teenager. When in high school, she made most of her own clothing, embellishing them with embroidery stitches. She has been fortunate enough to take needlepoint classes around the country from many instructors including Julia Snyder, Sandra Arthur, Carolyn Hedge Baird, Kathy Fenchel, Kelly Clark, Cynthia Thomas, John Waddell, Tony Mineri and Suzi Vallerie. In addition, she had the great pleasure to attend a 3-week embroidery retreat in England with instructors, Philippa Turnbull, Meredith Willett and Alison Cole. Because of her extensive exposure to antique needlework, she understands needlework styles of all kinds. Her personal interest is in 17th century English embroidery, and she likes to apply many of those techniques and materials to modern needlepoint. She finds today?s needlepoint to be very exciting ? using beautiful threads on a painted canvas and finding the perfect stitch for the two to work together creating an whole new level of texture and color.
