Mrs. Peacock - in the Library - with the Candlestick. . .

What a phenomenal success the Tudor Rose 10th Anniversary Sampler Workshop with Amy Mitten, Fibers to Dye For, turned out to be on March 6th & 7th!! None of us knew quite what to expect before arriving, but Amy presented the workshop as a "murder mystery" in 10 installments, introducing a new section of the sampler with each new story tidbit. We enjoyed a wonderful 2 days as we soaked up Amy's creativity and artistry. As you can see from the pictures, everyone worked diligently on his/her sampler. . .
At the end of the 10th installment, Amy provided a sealed envelope in each participant's folder, revealing the identity of the needleworking criminal. What fun!!

The sampler is beautiful, and incorporates many specialty stitches, along with some 3-D surface stitching to be attached to the sampler separately. For those who participated in the workshop, I took some incredibly close-up pictures that may help you as you work on your project. If you need to see some of these photos, contact me by email or leave a comment.
We all had such a great time and enjoyed everything about the workshop. . .we hope you will come back to Texas, Amy. Thank you!!

Amy's other designs may be seen below, in the previous post, or at one of these websites: Traditional Stitches; Wyndham Needleworks. . .


  1. wow, it is stunning - GREAT pics Barbie - you are doing a fabulous job. Yes, I would like to get the close ups of the sampler. Mine has not come yet, but I cannot wait. Oh, this makes me miss the guild so much. Who got so much of the rose done?

  2. I'm taking the Ten class in April and was trying to decide 40 or 32 ct?
