On June 3 and 4, 2016, we hosted Catherine Theron and her “Bless this House” sampler. This sampler was worked on 32 count linen using a collection of silks and cottons.

On October 15, 2016, we have the opportunity for a private textile tour at the Webb-Deane-Stevens
Museum in Wethersfield. We will get a rare behind- the-scene view of this historic and well-preserved collection. After lunch, we will gather at Thistle Needleworks and create beautiful bargello balls using four values of the same color, from very dark to very light.

On June 17, 2017, we will have Catherine Theron back for another beautiful project. The piece is entitled “My Peaceable Kingdom” and is worked on 30-count vanilla linen, this lovely, “peaceable” sampler will provide hours of pleasurable stitching. The top section features a lady in her garden complete with dogs, lilacs and bee skeps. The cen- ter has a colonial home reminiscent of the houses in Williamsburg, VA, “alphabet trees”, a family, pets and plenty of birds.   The center bottom area has an over-one village scene surrounded by the wild woods and various woodland creatures.  The piece is outlined by a flowing strawberry border. Stitches used include long arm cross, Smyrna cross, stem, diagonal satin, padded satin, petit point,
colonial knot, straight, spiral trellis and several others. A myriad of colorful silk and cotton threads are used to create this scene.
