But what I can write about is the 2017 ANG Seminar in Anaheim, CA I attended from August 24th through September 2nd. Took two wonderful classes--the first with Cynthia Thomas on how to use Excel to write stitch guides. A few years ago I wrote a stitch guide for a drawn thread class I gave to Delaware's Seashore Chapter (click here). I used software that was .jpg based and once the work was saved, could not make changes. A very cumbersome process. Using Excel would have been so much easier. Now I know.
The second class was Coy Koi, a needlepointed purse by Janet Zickler Casey. Not only did we learn how to work the front and back sections, Janet also showed us how to mount the canvas on the pre-formed "clam shell" style purse form which was included with the class kit. I can't wait to blog about this one.
