MONTHLY ABC - Adventures in stitches - Basic to Challenging
This class is being taught as a year long adventure once a month. We started at the end of April but you are welcome to join anytime—the pattern works up fairly quickly so you still have time to sign up. The complete design will be a mystery as you will receive a new pattern each month to add to what you have already done. We started with basic stitches and will progress to more challenging stitches making this a perfect class for anyone who wants to learn to do counted needlepoint or has a desire to learn about different stitches and threads. Kit cost is $75 and includes first month’s pattern. $15/mo thereafter
To sign up, come in and pick out a Watercolor thread.
Last Tuesday of the month 6:30-8:30pm OR Last Saturday of the month (will not meet in December)
We’re stitching the Little Women Christmas Sampler and discussing (among other things!) the novel Little Women. Anyone can join us, anytime. We meet on the second Thursday of the month from 6:30-8:30pm. Group is free—you just have to purchase the pattern to join.
