Class Schedule

WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW ABOUT CLASSES AT STITCH:

I have available in the shop, 6 Ever Sewn machines that are available to be used free of charge if participating in a class.  You are also more than welcome to bring your own machine, if you are more comfortable using that.  All classes will specify cost for the instruction as well as note any fabric or supplies that will need to be purchased specific to the project. 

Always plan to bring along your basics like thread, scissors, pins, pincushion, marking pen, etc. Each sewing station is set up with machine, lighting, and a mini press board and iron to be shared among 2 machines, so no need to bring those items.  If you happen to forget one of the basics, there are also supplies available for purchase at the shop.

To register for classes, go to the home page here and look under New Arrivals for the most recently posted classes.  You can simply choose the class you would like to register for and checkout online. If the class you would like isn't visible, you can do a quick search using the word "class" and it should bring up all available options.

Cancellation policy: If you will be unable to attend a class (hey, life happens!), please notify me as soon as possible, but no less than 24 hours in advance to receive a full refund.  If you are unable to provide notice 24 hours in advance, a gift certificate in the amount of the class will be issued to you. It is absolutely acceptable to send someone in your place as well, if you are in a pinch. What a nice little surprise for a friend!

*If you purchase supplies/fabric from Stitch for a class, please enjoy a 15% discount on those items on me!

Magic Pillowcase-Tues, May 21st

Attention Beginners--NO EXPERIENCE NEEDED TO TAKE THIS CLASS! Yep, you can make this with never having touched a sewing machine. If you have been wanting to learn, this is the perfect class to dip your toes into the pool.

This is a kid-friendly class, but any child under 12 must have a parent or guardian present during the class to assist them.

What you need to bring to class: Scissors, Spool of thread (neutral color), Pins/Pincushion

What is provided: 1 yard plus 2 inches of fabric to construct your pillowcase. Please plan on arriving approx 15-20 minutes prior to class to choose and have your fabric cut.

*Cost of class=$30 and includes all fabric and instruction to complete your pillowcase.

Instructor: Angie Miller

Hedgehog Embroidery-Wed, May 29th

This embroidery class is a bit more advanced than the beginner class. A basic knowledge of stitches will greatly help you complete this. If you have taken a beginner class already or completed the floral embroidery project with Stitch already, this class is appropriate.

What you need to bring: Embroidery/thread scissors

What is provided in the kit:

7x7 inch square of muslin with the pattern transferred

5" wooden embroidery hoop (can be used to frame your finished piece)

15 skeins of DMC embroidery floss used in the pattern

Embroidery needle

JUNE 2019

Tues, June 4th 6-8:30pm

Beginner Hand Embroidery

We're taking a different approach to the beginner class this time around. Stitch will be kitting up this tiny floral embroidery project and you will jump right in learning as we go! Don't fret if this is your first go and the project doesn't turn out pristine, it's all part of the learning process. It's so satisfying to look back at your first try at something after you start to hone your skills and see how far you've come.

What you need to bring to class: Embroidery scissors, needle threader (optional, but I find a lot of people end up wanting one)

*Cost of class=$25.00 and includes 3" wooden hoop, 5" square of white muslin with pattern transferred and ready to stitch, embroidery needle, lengths of DMC embroidery floss in 6 colors.

Instructor: Angie Miller

Cost: No charge, but reserving your space is essential as seating is limited.
