The seminar was held in Lubbock, Texas which really is a beautiful town. The event started Thursday morning with a brief business meeting and then we were able to take trolley buses around town to a variety of shops as well as The Museum of Texas Tech. The museum was featuring the EGA 2014 National Exhibit and several embroidery-related exhibits, including an exhibit from the West Texas Chapter. It was a very fun day and a perfect way to start the seminar.
Friday and Saturday were class days. There were 8 different one-day or two-day classes to choose from as well as what we call "Studio Time". Studio Time is an opportunity to work on any project you want to bring and is a great way to meet new people and see their beautiful work. The classes covered a realm of variety of embroidery techniques, I chose a canvas work class on Friday and had Studio Time on Saturday.
The class I chose was taught by Margaret Bendig and the project was called "Palais". Even though I'm experienced in canvas work, I learned so much in this class! The project was fun to stitch and several color ways were offered. I chose southwest colors and am very happy with how it turned out. Unfortunately, the picture doesn't show the sparkle of the metallic threads.
I had such a wonderful time and made so many new friends. I'll definitely be attending the 2016 SCR Seminar in Dallas. The classes to be offered are fantastic! Check it out for your self at http://www.scr2016seminar.org/.
Now I'm off to the National Seminar in San Antonio, Texas and expect to have a great time!
