2017 Group Correspondence Courses

Announcing the next Group Correspondence Course offered by NER :

Maharajah’s Elephant by Mary Long

IMG 2412IMG 2410
This glitzy elephant is a Maharajah’s fantasy creature. Perhaps it is a jeweled decoration in a wonderful palace. It could be a toy for the Maharajah’s son and heir. Or maybe a Maharajah really can have a brightly colored elephant with gold feet and tusks! Let your imagination loose when choosing your colors and threads.

The decorative border is optional.

Although the primary goal of this project is to teach you the technique of canvas appliqué by attaching the ear to the elephant, you may complete the project by stitching the ear directly on the canvas ground fabric.

Stitches used include tent, rice, eyelet, swirl, alternating Scotch, mosaic, Rhodes, satin, and brick as well as several cross stitches including double, upright and Smyrnas.  The background is a bargello pattern.

The skill level is Intermediate.  The supply list can be found on the website.  The estimated cost of supplies is $105 for the blue version, about $10 more for the red version.  Size is 12 x 13.

NER is paying all registration fees associated with the class.  Each student pays only the cost of the instruction booklet and supplies, plus $10.00 towards the postage costs. 

The cost of the class is $50.00, which includes the $40.00 text fee and the $10.00 postage fee. 

Registration deadline is February 24, 2018.  Registration will be sent to National shortly thereafter.  Booklets will be received by the group leader approximately 8 to10 weeks after that.  The group leader will notify you of the end date.  This is a six month course.
