An Apple A Day
A Dimensional Canvas Project
by Diane Scott
This is a delightful little project for experienced beginners or intermediate stitchers and is composed of diagonal bands of canvas stitches in six panels. It is stitched on 18 count mono canvas in tones of red in a diverse assortment of fibres. The fibres include Watercolours by Caron, Rainbow Gallery Splendor and Neon Rays, Threadworx overdyed floss, Kreinik braid and silk perle, and DMC perle cotton.

The apple is finished as a 3 dimensional object stuffed with fibrefill and pellets. A finishing lesson will be included.

The project is composed of a variety of canvas stitches and is also an exercise in compensation stitches.  Learning the rhythm of creating stitch patterns builds confidence in filling in panels.

Registration for this course is open from August 1st, 2015 to September 30th, 2015.  The online classes will start on October 15th, 2015 and will finish on January 15th, 2016.

There are 3 options to the course:

Options A: Text only (electronic file)         $35.00

Option B: Text paper copy (includes postage within Canada) $39.00

Option C: Text and kit (includes canvas, fibres, and postage) $83.00

Students will require:

8” x 12” stretcher bars, tacks or staples, your preference
Thread conditioner: beeswax or Thread Heaven (optional, but I like it for some fibres)
Clamp or frame weight
4” doll needle
Your usual stitching accoutrements, magnifiers, light, needle magnets, etc.
A laying tool of some kind: a thick, blunt needle is fine
#22 and 24 tapestry needles
Fibrefill stuffing and stuffing pellets
