Stitches and threads. Stitches and threads. They are the stuff of needlepoint and are always exciting. But learning them can often be a daunting task for new stitchers or those trying needlepoint for the first time.
In this class, suitable for beginners and all others, you’ll have an opportunity to learn about eight threads with seven stitches all in the context of this charming canvas from Sandy Grossman-Morris. While many beginning needlepoint classes cover stitches only, this class teaches about stitches and threads within the context of painted canvas, today’s most popular form of needlepoint.
The class is packed with so much information, you’ll learn how to make Basketweave and Continental properly. You’ll try stitches from several stitch families, including ones that call for two kinds of threads. You’ll discover tips and techniques for using all types of threads, including ribbons and the popular overdyed threads. You’ll even learn some more advanced stitches and techniques.
The canvas is perfectly sized to hold an iPod or iPhone and is included with your class fee. An optional thread kit is available for an extra fee.
You might be wondering about whether an on-line class is for you. My classes are designed to be short and affordable, giving using projects that are quick to finish and focusing on specific aspects of needlepoint. I try to replicate the experience of an in-person class on-line, by providing lots of additional material and instruction beyond the printed materials. Stitchers at all levels have fallen in love with them.
The class, with canvas included, is $35. Registration is open now, and you can sign up by using this PayPal button.
