Stumped for a holiday gift idea for the miniature lover in your life? One of the best gifts I have gotten in the last few years was an embroidery
class in Williamsburg, Virginia. It wasn’t a miniature class, but it was a stupendous treat for me, and I’ve found many ways to use what I learned on miniature projects.
My husband asked me recently, what I’d like for Christmas this year, and I’ve considered asking for a class at the IGMA study
program in Colonial Williamsburg January 13-16. There are four classes being offered, two emphasizing the construction of different pieces of furniture, one class decorating and assembling
a fancy side chair, and a fourth class in needlework; all being taught by well known IGMA Artisan and Fellow member teachers with loads of experience in their craft. The study programs make for a wonderful long weekend experience at an historical location, with a little culture thrown in for good luck.
If you are able to appreciate gratification delayed for an even longer period, the gift of a week at Guild School in June will be even more of a
Wow! gift. Class information is posted on the website with photos of the class projects, and now that the pre-registration period is over, information on which classes are still available will be posted soon.
