Dollhouse Needlepoint Patterns and Kits

Natalia's Fine Needlework

Workshops and On-line Classes

September, 2017

Christmas is coming to town. 

Santa is peaking into the frosty window of our house that is surrounded by evergreen trees. 
The golden stars are shining bright in the dark blue sky, bringing the Christmas spirit and joy into our life.

Using 7 different stitches ( French Knots, Eyelet Stitch, Smyrna Stitch, Elongated Smyrna Stitch, Satin Stitch, Continental Tent Stitch and Cross Stitch) the students will learn how to use silk gauze as a mini canvas. Students will try different cotton and silk floss of their choice. A stitched piece could be finished as a pillow, a canvas stretched on a needlework stand, or as a wall picture. 

This fun workshop offers an additional pattern, materials and instructions on how to stitch and finish matching pair of Christmas slippers.

Art of Petit Point in Miniature (for beginners)

For some people Petit Point in miniature seems to be intimidating. Here is a unique invitation into the magical world of miniature needlepoint. This class is a thorough guide to the design, materials, and techniques that transform the dollhouse miniatures hobby into artistic craft. 

From discoveries made during many years of miniature needlework experience, the instructor directs you to the materials (silk gauze, needles, cotton and silk floss, etc...), equipment, tools and designs. The class offers basic, easy-to-follow instructions; explains and illustrates in pictures the ways of treating silk gauze, framing it, stitches that are used in miniature needlepoint, the finishing techniques. 

Each student will receive a kit "Hunter" to practice their skills on 40 count silk gauze. The kit includes all sufficient supplies to finish the picture. Finishing the project at class is unlikely.
Level: beginners
Students need to bring: embroidery scissors; additional light, magnifier, if needed.
$95 (including the price of a kit and a stitching frame)
Wooden picture frame NOT included.
