Dear Friends and Students,

I know as I write this letter that you are probably at home, as we are, not wanting to risk going out because of the Corona Virus Outbreak. All ongoing courses at our center in La Conner are postponed or are being postponed class by class until the virus threat has disappeared. New class dates are on our website now.

Our art and embroidery community at the center is a strong one with hundreds of like – minded people creating, exploring or imagining artwork.  I would like to think that our website, newsletters and blogs equally inspire even if they only bring a smile or provide a few minutes away from your daily concerns.

We (Christina Fairley Erickson-webmaster and I) are taking the time to add to our website with the addition of a new online Gallery featuring 5 graduates individual artwork from Level 4 Experimental Stitch and Multimedia (the Turquoise class.) We are also offering the online Courses in Color and online Circles 1 and Circles 2 at a much reduced price for those of you who would like to pursue a creative path while stuck at home.

Penny Peters' entry for 10 Million Stitches project

Have a look at our blogs – Penny Peters just wrote a blog showing her artwork for the project 25 Million Stitches.

Send us a photo of what you are doing.  We would love to hear from you.

Warm regards,

Gail Harker
