Tree Ornament with EGA Brandywine Chapter and Vicky Witterschein

My EGA Brandywine Chapter hosted a class earlier tonight with Vicky Witterschein so she can gain experience towards her teaching certification with the National Academy of Needlearts (NAN).

Many thanks to her local needlepoint shop, The Edwardian Needle and Pam, for donating 20 kits to each of EGA’s 5 regions. It consists of 5″ x 5″ piece of 18 count canvas, Santa Fe Sage, 2 mm ribbon, Kreinik, pearls, needles, and beading thread.

Vicky led us through the stitches, had video demonstrations, and several of us finished the project during the 2-hour Zoom class. She is well on her to being an excellent teacher.

It could be done as a diamond like I did (2″ x 3″) or a Christmas Tree. Any ribbon thread will work, if I want to make up another. It’s great that the stitches work up easily into 2 different designs.

Thanks for posting this Melita. I’m going to link this page to my upcoming blog about this class. Your diamond looks great in green.

That’s lovely! It’s great because the stitches are relatively simple to execute and the materials so easily found in one’s stash. There’s a lot of room for improvisation with what’s on hand.
