During the NeedleWorkers MarketPlace, this past April,  Carolyn Mitchell and I discussed the possibility of her teaching a workshop at Gitta's.
Carolyn is a canvaswork and hardanger designer.  Her original designs are filled with a creative use of various fibres and layered stitches.  And "Mystique" is no exception.  It is an absolutely stunning design.

 This was a 2 two day workshop held this past weekend in our class room at the shop.
Carolyn teaches at guilds and shops both in Canada and the US, as well as mentoring new designer.
In the photo above she demonstrated the Twisted Bow stitch.
She is a wonderful and well respected designer and instructor.
The ladies had a great time and accomplished a lot in 2 days.  This was the last "live" Mystique workshop for a number of years, as ANG, the American Needlepoint Guild,  has reserved the rights to this design for their Cyber Class line-up. But for now the "Mystique" model and some of Carolyn's designs are on display at Gitta's. So if you are able to visit the shop, drop by and see for yourself. 
 I would like to thank Carolyn for a wonderful weekend - for sharing her knowledge and love of Needlework.

Don't forget that December 3rd is Gitta's Christmas Open House.  
Drop by for some Christmas Cheer.
