Jackpot Frame Weight by Sandie Cormaci-Boles

The Jackpot Frame Weight contains a “Jackpot” of stitching techniques!  The design is stitched on a 10” x 12” cut of 18 count mono canvas using four shades of overdyed silk.  The finished design size is approximately 5 ½” x 3 ½”.  The model is finished as a frame weight, but this design could also be used for a framed piece, pillow or trivet.

The techniques taught are:  color & design theory, stitching with overdyed threads, stitching with silk, using a laying tool, mosaic, straight cross, bound cross, double Leviathan, cross stitch, rice stitch, long-armed cross, Smyrna cross, ray stitch variation, double straight cross and Milanese variations.  Students will explore how their color choices work together to make a beautiful finished product.  Students will receive information to choose their color palette prior to the class.
