The program is full.

Jump into your traveling shoes and join Sue as she makes her way around the globe to immerse each participant in a comprehensive study of trees. From Jamaica to Morocco, from the United States to South Africa, accompany Sue on this adventure to develop an understanding of each trees ideal climate to flourish.
This year, expect the unexpected...
A mystery border and creatures will emerge and take on life within the boundaries of each habitat. This multi-layered hand-dyed wool quilt will feature large blocks, trees that may be pieced or layered and embroidery with a variety of threads that differ in type and weight.

Size: 36” x 48”

Forest for the Trees will be a 12 month program and the quilt will be approximately 36” x 48”. Each month you will receive a kit and pattern. The kit may include items such as: hand dyed wools and velvets, cotton and textural fabrics, ribbons and embellishing threads. 

The kits for January, February and March will include additional embroidery threads so we have a nice stash to play with throughout the year. The program will also include a hand picked backing, binding and label.

Please note: Sue Spargo reserves the right to make changes to her design (above sketch) as she works through her creative process throughout the year.

All kits are hand-dyed to our specifications. No substitutions of kit contents will be made.

As a requirement for the BOM program, you will need to have my book Creative Stitching Second Edition. Directions for the stitches used each month will be referenced by page numbers from this book. New stitches not found in the book will be illustrated in your monthly pattern.

In addition to each monthly kit, you will need various colors of wool and cotton threads for appliqué. These threads will be optional additions to your BOM packages. More details on threads will be discussed in a welcome newsletter for those who sign up for the program.
