Green Roly Poly Santa–
January/February dates being set This cute Roly Poly guy is available on either Friday May 12 or Saturday June 3.  The background is your choice - he could be a pillow, standup or hanging ornament.  The basted outline on the model is for a standup with a slightly open metallic background stitch.  And I can't decide whether to add a bell or pom pom to the end of the hat.  Decisions, decisions. The design uses a variety of threads including Glisten (wool and metallic blend), Splendor silk, Mandarin Floss, Kreinik braids and Gloriana's Lorikeet wool for the fluffy beard. .
The class will run from 10:30 a.m. until 1:00 p.m and is $90.  You will need 9x10 stretcher bars
(not included) and we are happy to mount the canvas for you ahead of class time. Plenty of
time before the winter holidays to finish this guy and perhaps one or more of his three
colorful companions from Heartstrings. Visit www.artistscollection.net to see more designs.
Don't forget that a deposit of 50% is required at signup to assure your space.  Call or email today!
