I have just had a weekend teaching at the Great Escape. It is an embroidery weekend, held once a year in Orewa, just north of Auckland, NZ.
I had a fantastic group of ladies all starting a sketch book. I helped them start sketching things they loved, collecting pictures from mags etc. and then on Sunday they all started to stitch, You could feel the excitement in the air, and hopefully they have all gone home feeling ready to design their own pieces from now on! I really look forward to seeing where this weekend will lead them.
