Catching Up ANG National Seminar 2022 Part 1

I realize there is a big blog post gap from June 2022 to July 2023. As I have mentioned I was in a slump (now I see a huge slump) regarding stitching, paper crafts or anything crafting in general. I got on a reading jag and never stopped! 

I seem to be getting my mojo back, so that is good news.

July 29 - August 5, 2022, the American Needlepoint Guild had their National Seminar and celebration of 50 years as a Guild in Tucson, Arizona. Since that was driving distance for me, I decided to go.

I took three classes. Two were two days and one was one day. To avoid a post being too photo-heavy, I will post about each class separately.

The weather was fine and the views from the hotel were fantastic. I will spread them out among the posts. The Seminar was held at the Westin La Paloma with great views of the Catalina mountains.

My first class was August 1 & 2. Aztec Heart by Kathy Rees. Here is my progress to date. I stitched a little after Seminar, but not much.

Note: I obtained verbal permission to post photos of the instructor's piece and my progress.

Here is the class sample.

My progress in class.

This is my progress to date. As you can see, I worked on it a bit after the seminar. I believe the needle keep is an Seminar item purchased in advance.

The design size is 9"x 9". It uses floss and metallics for accents.

This seminar was originally set for 2020 but Covid delayed it. I was all set to go and had purchased the name tag instructions. In 2022, they had another name tag option, but I liked the original from 2020 and decided to stitch it. 

That is all for ANG National Seminar 2022 Part 1
