New Online Classes: Stitch a stunning Geometric design, Create Patterns from Digital Images, Learn the Art of Petit Point

We are excited to announce some exciting additions to our schedule of upcoming classes!

First, registration is currently open for our upcoming online class Maple Leaves with Susan Hoekstra. On this class you will work with a variety of composite and specialty stitches to create a stunning geometric design. The kit for the class includes many types of threads to facilitate the geometric leaf balance and because optional painting of select areas of the design are encouraged, the class will also touch on painting canvas within a geometric piece. Your finished fall-colored masterpiece will measure approximately 10 1/2″ x 10 1/2. Registration is open through November 3, 2021. The class schedule is January 5 – March 9, 2022 with lessons posted weekly.

Maple Leaves will include instruction via PDF, Videos and Zoom sessions and you will be able to answer questions, share your work and communicate with fellow students through a class discussion group. Click here to register!
