Sue Spargo Pincushion Class


Last Friday, I had the opportunity to take a half-day class from artist, author, and pattern designer, Sue Spargo.  We learned about wool and velvet appliqué along with some embroidery stitches to embellish the circle shapes.  I really enjoyed myself.  I love the intensity of color and texture in this piece.  A photograph really doesn’t do it justice.  It has much more personality in person.  I have quite the wool stash along with threads, buttons, and beads at home.  This class reminded me how much I love embroidery.  I plan to do more pieces…partly because they travel well and aren’t messy.
