Welcome to my Zuni Sunset class on Thursday-Monday, March 2-6, 2017 through ANG CyberPointers Chapter. I can’t wait to work with you all again. We will have a good time working on Zuni Sunset.

Zuni Sunset is a small (2” x 6”) needlepoint design representing the earth, sun, and mountains at sunset. The turquoise bear fetish is a symbol of health, strength, introspection, and power for the soul, and will protect the recipient of this piece. In this 1-day intermediate level canvas embroidery class on Turquoise 18ct canvas, using wool, silk, cotton, and Sea Grass threads, you will make Zuni Sunset depict a beautiful western sunset while studying a bit of history & beliefs of the Zuni and their fetishes. The piece is a companion to Zuni Sunrise. Finishing ideas, including a small box, will be discussed.

  • #4 Pencil for drawing on canvas (optional, but a good idea)
