Designer of the Month: Lorene Salt

Lorene Salt is an award winning stitcher, and her favourite medium is Canvaswork. She has been designing for over 5 years and enjoys watching a piece come alive through colour and texture.

She has completed the Basic, Intermediate and Advanced Canvaswork courses through EAC (Embroiderers' Association of Canada), and has also  taken many cyberclasses and courses through EAC and ANG (American Needlepoint Guild). Lorene has taught at the EAC Seminar in Regina in 2010 and at the CreativFestival in Toronto in 2011 and 2012.

Some of her models on display at Gitta's will not be released until after the National EAC seminar next year, so drop by to see these and her other designs.

Lorene has a vast knowledge of canvas work and experience of stitching with all kinds of needleart fibres.  She will be in the shop Wednesday November 12th for Stitch Night, and will hold a mini canvas work workshop from 6:30pm to 8:30pm, and share her insights.

Visit our workshop page at for more details, or just call the shop.

While visiting Gitta's this month, don't forget to collect Lorene's contribution to the Designer of the Month Sampler.  This design is free of charge, but we hope that you will add some of her other designs to your canvas work collection.  All of her published designs are also available on our website.

Lorene is our final designer, and her design completes the Designer of the Month Sampler.  This has been an fun journey, and I am so please with the end result.  Didn't it turn out great?
