A Toast to Tiffany

  • Amerian Needlepoint Guild National Seminar Marriott Marquise 1777 Walker St. Houston, TX (map)

Proficiency Level: Intermediate

Class Length:  3 or 4 days

Class Description: Silk and Metal on Canvas

Combining two techniques that Tiffany was known for: stained glass and jewelry; we will develop a precious landscape gem in silk and metal needlework.

The interior depicts a hillside of trees and water against a pale morning sky in space dyed silks in satin, laid, and renaissance stitches--some with padding. The borders are worked in combinations of sequins, beads, Jessica and composite stitches in silk and braids. These are joined in embellished waffle stitches. Student knowledge of Hilton type stitches will be helpful.
