Hurry to Sign Up for Maggie Meister's Classes

Maggie is scheduled for 3 FULL Day classes in January, but Time to Sign up is getting short!
Maggie is one my favorite designers. She is passionate about antiquities and all of her designs recreate these antiquities by intricately combining stitches.
No artist challenges you quite so much to think outside of traditional pattern designs and truly combine stitches with the ancient piece as the standard. I learned more about combining all the stitches I have learned from Maggie's classes, than from any other artist!
The pieces you create in Maggie's class have already stood the test of time and will be a treasured heirloom in your collection!
Maggie is coming Jan 20 - 22
But flight tickets have to be bought 3 weeks in advance.
Deadline to sign up for Maggie's classes to guarantee she comes is December 27!
Just click on the pics to sign up.
Macha Necklace - Thur, Jan 20 - The original piece was inspired by the Celtic torcs worn in ancient Ireland and is named for the woman who was the only High Queen among the High Kings of Ireland.
