Anyone working on one of these? I've just discovered them, and I think
they're beautiful. They also look pretty darn complicated. I enjoy band
samplers with specialty stitches, so I think I would like these, but I
wondered how difficult they are (I've never seen one of the charts in
person). I'm especially intrigued by her "garden" designs. Has anyone
ordered an electronic chart from the Web site? Did that work out okay?

Thanks,

Re: Chatelaine Designs - Martina Weber
In retrospct Martina used to post here some years ago. IIRC she
collected items to give to a home for women; I remember sending her some
stuff. I would love to see her, and many of the other designers come
back to the fold!!

happy Thanksgiving to all!!

I have Alhambra Garden kitted and ready and calling to me.  Martina
has her own Yahoo group where people discuss her designs, but I can't
figure out how to join it without screwing up my Theresa Wentzler
boards.  I don't think they look any more difficult than a TW, of
which I've done a bunch, so I'm not too worried.  (Watch me eat my
words in a couple of months...)

There is quite a cult following developing for Martina's designs. I know
  that I have fallen sucker to these in the past year myself.
I have purchased about 5 leaflets for mandala garden patterns and the
charts don't look too difficult. There are detailed explanations for all
specialty stitches used. The leaflets are printed in black and white though.
If you purchase direct from Martina online, you can receive pattern
options in black/white and color.
Right now, I am participating in one of her online classes called
"Medieval Town Mandala". Absolutely scrumptious!!! It just started in
October, so the participants only have two parts so far.
Martina does have several Yahoo groups lined up, but the best resource
is http://p212.ezboard.com/bchatelainedesigns . EZBoard is a little more
rambunctious, but there is always help and commentary.

One common comment (complaint?) about Martina's designs is that they
are not inexpensive. I think she uses silks for everything.

Beautiful stuff, but like MLI and Nora, not my style. Enjoy.

Yes, the original threads are expensive, BUT she does give the DMC
equivilents for her patterns, so anyone can afford to do them.

It is entirely choice how much you want to spend!

She does have a Freebies page on her website, perhaps if you try
stitching one it might give you an idea of the difficulty of her
designs?

I'd probably try "Christmas Mandala", "Springtime Roses", or "Tiny Rose
Garden", they all look similar to her larger designs, I think!
