One of the great parts of being an Artist-in-Residence with Red Rock Canyon Interpretive Association is the time I spend in Red Rock Canyon.

October Workshops at Red Rock Canyon

September is awesome. This Fall I’m an Artist-in-Residence, along with two other amazing artists, at the Red Rock Canyon Interpretative Association. The residency dates run from October 1st through the 14th, with embroidery workshops on October 4th and October 11. My classes will focus on stitching the impressive Red Rock Canyon landscape. Call the number on the flier to sign up. Hope to see you soon!

Back stitch and straight stitch are being employed here. The thread is DMC.
