Blackwork Study of Cats

"I really enjoyed this excellent class from Tanja and am pleased with my cats.  Her instructions are very clear and comprehensive and the very quick feedback and advice from her truly helpful. I had long wanted to learn how to shade in blackwork and learnt a lot from this project"

"Embroidering the cats was a lot of fun. Each cat was very different from the other both in the use of the shading techniques and the look of the cat. Each cat has its own personality and the photo cannot show the 3D effect of the cats that the shading produces. Thank you Tanja for sharing your expertise with us and for your wonderful guidance as we stitch some of the more intricate parts of the cats"

" had a great time stitching Tanja's blackwork cats. You could see each one come alive, just by changing the thickness of the thread, and develop their own personalities as you progressed through the class.  This was the first on-line class I have done and I found Tanja's step by step instructions excellent with the almost instant feedback on submission of a photo a real bonus. I learnt a lot during the class and love the effect of my finished cats"

Blackwork Study of Cats

"I had been on the lookout to do a class in shaded Blackwork so was very excited when Tanja offered her ‘Cats’ project, it did look challenging but I thought it was just the right size as a next step for me and the design had lots of variety. This was my first online class with Tanja and I am very pleased with what we have achieved. I think the proof is in the pictures!

I found all aspects of the class to be very professionally handled. I really liked being able to buy a kit of materials so I knew I would have everything I needed to do the project just as was intended, it arrived in plenty of time and I just love the anticipation of being ready to start something new. All the instructions were made available as per the course schedule, feedback on the online forum was prompt  and questions and answers distributed frequently so I was always well informed. I must commend Tanja on the quality and detail of her instructions and feedback, down to the single stitch on 32 count linen! I also really enjoyed seeing the progress made by other class members and learnt something new every time a question was asked and a photo commented on.

Try as I might I wasn’t able to keep up to date for the first few lessons so I must also thank Tanja for her patience and suggesting strategies to ensure that I would get as much from the class as I could. Fortunately I was able to set myself some time aside to finish in the last few weeks of the class. Thank you Tanja for getting me there, it was much appreciated. What a great stepping stone to doing Tanja’s Blackwork Elephant!"

"Tanja's cats each have such wonderful true-to-life expression!  I couldn't believe I would capture that, but with her materials, detailed instructions, ongoing reviews and encouragement they turned out very nicely.  Seeing them from a distance is even better!"

"I have learned so much from Tanja in this Blackwork class.  I've always admired the beautiful "painted" Blackwork pictures. It's interesting how manipulating variations of designs, along with changing thread types/thicknesses allows one to create such a beautiful picture. And--this is getting me closer to working her wonderful Elephant."
