TRSG Zoe Box Virtual Workshop
TRSG is offering a Virtual Workshop featuring the Zoe Box at FabyReilly.com. The Zoe Box is a 4 sided box with lid stitched in a seasons of the year motifs. It uses DMC floss with 1 specialty thread on 32-count linen. There are 4 specialty stitches, and the chart explains each in detail.
Participants will purchase their own chart and supplies and meet online via Zoom on Thursdays from 7:00 to 9:00 PM Central Time beginning June 10. We want to meet in September or October to assemble the box together.
Everyone is welcome to join the Workshop Thursday Stitch-Along.
If you are interested in joining the Virtual Workshop group Stitch-Along, please contact Debra B at the address in the email sent to members. Details for ordering the supplies and links to the Zoom meeting will follow by return emails.
This is also a part of our Outreach Program, so if you have a friend that would like to join us, they do not have to join TRSG, Debra just needs their email address to send the weekly Zoom links.
Please go to https://fabyreilly.com/product/zoe-box to order your Zoe Box chart. The site is in England and will convert your credit card purchase from pounds to dollars. Current rates make the chart around $11.00. The chart is a pdf that you can download immediately. The pattern is 33 pages of charts, stitching and assembly instructions.
This is a fun project – we hope you’ll join us!
Amy Mitten Zoom Workshop
Mute But Not Silent
Registration is Now Closed
We are proud to have one of our favorite teachers/designers, Amy Mitten, do a workshop for us to be held via Zoom on September 18, 2021 starting at 10:00 am US Central Time.
Cost of the workshop is $160 which includes your kit plus postage. Amy’s kits are assembled with color photographs, charts, detailed stitch instructions, linen, “Fibers To Dye For” hand dyed silk threads, and a needle. The teaching fee is being paid by the Tudor Rose Sampler Guild.
Mute But Not Silent is a 17th century-style sampler with a mystery story. Each chapter of the story coincides with the historically symbolic motifs of the sampler. Clues, hidden within both the sampler and the story, will be revealed during the workshop in order to discover the solution to the mystery.
The year is 1790. A Captain returns home after a long journey at sea to discover his wife and young son are gone. Can he possibly unravel the mystery of their disappearance from the motifs and symbolism stitched in a young girl’s sampler?
Finished Size: 12” x 18”
Fabric: 32 count Lambswool Linen
There will be an autopsy of several types of sampler stitches and some wonderful hemstitching. This is a premeditated murder so some plotting and pre-class preparation is required. (Basting and mounting to scroll bars.)
Nicola Parkman from Hands Across the Sea
Special Lecture and Workshop
Tudor Rose Sampler Guild had hoped to host a very special event for the TRSG members by inviting Nicola Parkman of Hands Across the Sea Samplers to present a special project as a part of our 20th Anniversary celebrations. However, with COVID being a major spoiler for the year 2020, Nicola was unable to come to the U.S. for the special event.
