Posted by 3 on

Almost done...just a little bit left. This beautiful tree by Raymond Crawford is being stitched by Marylou Bernasek at BeStitched Needlepoint Store. The stitch guide is by Alice Hall.

Bedazzled Boat Buddies Was Quite the Learning Experience!

Posted by 3 on

The class was a “WOW”! Jan Ayeroff substituted for Wendy Harwood of Aristeia Needlepoint.  Jan did a fantastic job!
