When four experienced needlepoint teachers get together and collaborate, some of the most fun and the most learning occurs.
Tony is joined by Meredith Willet, Suzanne Howren and a guest teacher. Recruiting Debbie Stiehler as a guest teacher has proved to be a marvelous evolution, as Debbie adds her flair and humor to the group.
As in Tony's other canvas embellishment classes, the student selects his/her canvas and sends a full-sized copy to the team for review. The Squad discuss it and determine the overall goals of embellishment while making notes of some individual style ideas.
In class, it's a rotation-style teaching event, with 4 groups of students and (usually) four days. Every day, the group gets a different teacher. By the end, the student has a stitch guide that's designed collaboratively by the four teachers, with each teacher being responsible for a unique section of the canvas.
With this group, the sky is the limit. There's fun, laughter, learning, creating, collaborating, and loads of happiness. Working together, many hands make beautiful designs!
