First Place, Non-Professional Non-Original with Instruction; The Exemplary

What drew me to this piece was the opportunity to learn new stitches and to perfect stitches that I had already learned. I also fell in love with the canvas design as it was a unique holiday piece.

I chose to have the piece finished as a box style stand-up so that it could take center stage during the holidays.

Amy Bunger is a wonderful teacher and the opportunity to take a “home study” course from her was, to me, a golden opportunity.
