Brenda Stofft’s Moon Light Poppy Garden by Alida Akers perfectly matches the dramatic beauty and magic of the Skagit Tulip Fields. This canvas is 13 mesh, and 14″ x 14″. Laura has expertly crafted a guide to creatively complete this piece. Stitch Guide, Thread & embellishment kit TBD.
Laura’s interest for needlearts began as a young girl when she sat alongside her Grandmother crocheting, sewing, needlepointing, quilting and cross stitching. Her design background finds its way into every canvas that Laura works on with her love for color, texture and balance uniting to enhance her approach to the piece. Laura is a passionate teacher who collaborates with each student to bring out their personal best.
Around 1883, George Gibbs, an immigrant from England moved to Orcas Island WA, where he began to grow apples and hazelnuts. Nine years later, he purchased five dollars’ worth of flower bulbs to grow, and when he dug them up a couple years later and saw how they had multiplied, realized the potential for bulb-growing in the Puget Sound region. He then impressed the Dutch tulip farmers with his talent so much, that they shared their incredibly secret growing tactics. Today the 300 acres of tulip fields are visited by over 1 million each year.
