Wildflowers Huswife

Summer House Stitch Workes

Friday and Saturday August 4th & 5th

Join us Friday and Saturday August 4th and 5th, 2023 for the Huswife Companion to Wildflowers from Beth at Summer House Stitche Workes.

If you’ve ever had a workshop with Beth, I’m preaching to the choir!  But if this will be your first, you will absolutely love the experience.  Beth is a wonderful teacher and you always walk out of class having learned something new and feeling accomplished.  You usually have a finished item to take with you and show off!

Here’s a word from Beth:  A combination of counted cross stitch and free form embroidery (pre-stitch & class) create the feel of a gentle breeze flowing through the wildflowers that populate the front bottom of the folded huswife. The top flap is enhanced by a pattern of pulled stitches (class), stitched on contrasting linen that allow the underlying quilting cotton to peek through. The flap and bottom front are combined by tying hand-dyed twill tape through a buttonhole-stitch embellished ring. The reverse side of the closed huswife features the stitcher’s initials and date (pre-stitch), stitched on linen and then affixed to the quilt cotton. (class) The interior of the huswife features more buttonhole-stitched rings to hold floss and strips of wool blend felt for needle storage, all appliqued onto a coordinating quilting cotton using various stitches. (class)


Cost of the workshop includes your kit, Friday afternoon class, optional Stitch-In on Friday Night with pizza from Blue Mountain Pizza, and Saturday full day class, and lunch on Saturday.  $175.

This workshop has a small amount of pre-stitch you can do.  We’ll ship that kit to you upon your registration.  Be sure to bring it with you to the workshop.

Now… for the big news… you’ll be the first class hosted since we reopen our brick and mortar in our new home (fingers crossed).  We’re pushing really hard to make it happen.  I should have more news for you in a week or so on that.  If we make it, you can rest assured your weekend with us will be super special.  Not to mention that August 3rd (Thursday before class) is my double nickle birthday!!

I really hope you can join us.  I am so very excited for this workshop!!
