Pilot Stitching Desert Rose for ANG National 2022

I volunteered to pilot stitch a class for Jeannette Tombaugh which she planned to teach at ANG National Seminar in 2022.

She asked we not post photos until after the seminar brochure was out. I think I am safe!

For those of you who do not know, pilot stitching is when you take the class to help the instructor find any errors or confusion in the written and verbal instructions. It is kind of a trial run before the big event! You also need to finish the project, or sometimes you are assigned a section. This helps the instructor know if there will be enough thread, beads, etc. in the kit. Because this is a trial run, the teaching fee is usually waved and all you need to pay for is the kit.

It is on sage green mono canvas and uses silks, cotton, beads, Painters Thread and Entice.

I have piloted classes before, but usually in a classroom. This time we did it via zoom or similar. It worked out ok and we were able to help her with the instructions, timing, etc.

I love helping instructors by piloting classes and was pleased this could be done off site (which is not usually how it is done).

Happy Stitching!!
