EAC Beginner Counted Thread Correspondence Course
The individual courses are more study courses where you do samples, research, etc. Lots of information on the correct way to do things and little hints along the way to improve your stitching. So, even though I've done a fair bit of counted thread work, I am starting with the beginner one and so far I am happy I did. You are allowed 18 months to finish the six lessons in this course. You send each lesson in and make whatever corrections are necessary when you get it back. You end up with a huge binder of wonderful resource material although by the way lesson one went, I don't think one binder will do it, lol.
These are my pages from Lesson One ready to be packaged up and sent off in the mail to my counsellor. It looks like a small pile but only a fraction of the pages need to be corrected along the way - the rest will be reviewed when I submit the whole binder at the end. This little pile of pages actually represents quite a bit of work though!
So, keep your fingers crossed for me that I don't need to re-do too much of it! While I am waiting for it to come back, I'll be starting on lesson 2 - blackwork!
