I have been asked quite a few times lately by friends if we (Piccalilli Design, but more importantly my mom) would teach them how to needlepunch. So, I am letting you all know that we are going to set up a few "classes" for anyone in the Salt Lake City area who would like to learn how to create with this form of embroidery. If you are interested, send me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org, or you can leave me your contact info on the comments. We will set up classes according to the response.
It is really a fun thing to learn. You can frame the finished product, turn it into a softie, a pillow, a gift. It is also a fun thing to do with girlfriends, mothers, daughters, your book group, blog looky-loos....
You can choose from the designs already in our etsy shop (and there are 8 or so more that are nearly ready, including the Christmas tree to the left) or bring a pattern of your own choosing.
So please don't be shy! If you are in the area and would like to learn how but feel a little hesitant about contacting me, JUST DO IT! Contact me and I will send you details. Punch and cookies and a new hobby? Not too shabby.
