I had the pleasure of eavesdropping on 4 days of Sharon G classes and I am fired up to create wonderful stitch guides for my upcoming projects.

Sharon started the classes with a mini lesson about creating stitch guides that started with how you look at a canvas. Each student came away with a packet to keep for reference. Sharon also brought stitched samples of some of her canvases that elicited many “oohs” and “aahs”. They were wonderful inspiration for everyone. The results at the end of each day were really pleasing.

Another great aspect of meeting with an artist and teacher was getting to see how her creative process took her fabulous designs to stitched pieces that were even more incredible than the original bare canvas. I also give Sharon kudos for her very well written and illustrated stitch guides; they include great detail and clear instructions.

All in all, we had a great time.
