Golden Gala Evening Purse - 9/26/18

September 26, 2018--Stitching is completed on both the front and back panels.  Now to line each one in preparation of inserting them into the clear acrylic purse form.

Golden Gala Evening Purse Front and Back Panels


September 21, 2018--While at the ANG 2018 Seminar in Washington, DC last month, I took a class by Michele Roberts called Golden Gala Evening Purse.  It consists of 2 panels (a front and a back), backed with a beautiful fabric and exposed ribbons.  Both panels are inserted into a clear acrylic purse form that has golden hinges and a long detachable strap.

I learned the ribbons are placed on the back of each panel so the they can easily be pulled out of the acrylic form.   Without the ribbon "handles", damage could be done to the needlepoint when pulling it out.  A very good idea!

Below is a picture of the stitched purse front.  As usual, the photograph doesn't show the vibrancy and beauty of the threads.

  1. I'm not sure I understand "I learned the ribbons are placed on the back of each panel so the they can easily be pulled out of the acrylic form. Without the ribbon "handles", damage could be done to the needlepoint when pulling it out." Can you explain it to me? I love the shades of gold in this piece

    1. I know it's hard to visualize this, so I'm asking you to wait until I finish the front and back panels, then get them inserted into the acrylic purse. I'll take lots of pictures when I do this. I think that will answer your question.
