October 10th and 11, Diane Williams hosted a seminar in Ridgeland, MS, where the participants learned my process from A to Z. Three of them were experienced needleworkers and one an experienced painter so I felt free to cover a lot of ground. We started with a show-and-tell session (see photos below). Later we drew from life and reference photographs and learned how to correct our drawings until we achieved an accurate likeness. We assembled canvas stretchers and transferred the images from one surface to another. Threads were chosen and the stitching began.
