“Embellishment Class”

Denise Parks’s Newest Class!

November 5-6, 2021 and January 22, 2022

Madonna Needle Works is hosting a needlepoint embellishment class taught by Denise Park. Her schedule opened up and we have the good fortune to offer her class on November 5th & 6th with a follow-up on January 22nd, 2022. This is a rare opportunity to get Denise’s creative insights on threads, stitches, and other embellishments for a canvas of your choice!

Why this class is special:

Shops usually ask that you purchase a new canvas from the shop for an embellishment class. Because the supply lines are so unpredictable, Madonna Needle Works will let you bring a canvas you already own to the class. (You can, of course, purchase a new one from our in-store supply!)

How the class will work: 

Submit your canvas to Madonna no later than October 10, 2021 to ensure Denise can pick them up to work on your individual project. She will create a ‘template’ for your stitch guide, choose threads, beads, etc. that she will discuss with you during the class. Each student will have about 45 minutes of individual time with Denise each day to discuss any and all of her suggestions and learn any new techniques she has included.

On November 5th, Denise will spend a couple of hours in the morning discussing each canvas submitted by the attendees and detailing her perspective and approach. This is a valuable discussion for everyone, not just the stitcher who submitted the canvas! It helps you see all the canvases as a finished product rather than a flat projection. The canvas really comes to life with Denise’s excellent ideas. You will hear about principles and approaches that will help you with future projects.

November 6th, 2021 you will leave with a stitch guide for areas discussed, threads, beads, etc., and her professional opinions. Any supplies needed will be provided by Madonna Needle Works and will be charged to your account.

On January 22nd, 2022, a follow-up class will be offered. You can discuss any changes you want to make, ask questions about technique, and share you experiences with the rest of the attendees.

What are the details?

The cost for 3 days is $425.00 per person. We are limiting the class to 10 attendants to ensure Denise will have a lot of individual time with each person. Admittance will be on a first-come-first-serve basis.
