In May, our Chapter was pleased and excited to host Janeann Sleeman for a needlepoint class. Janeann has taught for us before (see here, here, here) and we were thrilled to have her back. Our class piece was this cute Blue Bunny. It finishes about 5" square.
Here is Janeann's finish. We didn't get a photo of it in the acrylic box that we all just loved! It was filled with eggs. Too cute!
Our class favor from Melody was this cute bunny!
Janeann led us through each section of the stitch guide and gave us plenty of tips along the way to improve as stitchers. It's those little things that have big impact and really make taking a class extra fun!

Henri made the most adorable box in the theme of the class as a very unique thank you card for Janeann. Henri has such talents and we are fortunate she is so generous with her talents!
Inside, each attendee wrote a brief thank you to Janeann. Janeann, we cannot tell you how much we appreciate your friendship and knowledge and your willingness to teach for us!
Here is a members WIP about 2 weeks after the class.
Another successful duClay class! Many thanks to Melody for always bringing us something fun to do. Lunch was catered by Brenda but we neglected to get photos of the food which was outstanding as always! For all the photos from the day, please see our Flickr Album for this event.
