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!

APRIL 2020

Thurs, April 2nd 6-8:30pm-Deathly Hallows Cross Stitch

THIS IS NOW A KIT THAT CAN BE PICKED UP CURBSIDE OR SHIPPED PRIOR TO THE CLASS THAT WILL TAKE PLACE VIRTUALLY.

In this class, you will receive 18ct white aida 11" by 11" for the design that measures 6.6" x 6.6", an 8 inch wooden embroidery hoop, 13 skeins of DMC embroidery floss, a cross stitch needle, and the pattern for the class as well as basic instruction on how to do counted cross stitch.

Please note that you will not complete the design during the class, but should have the knowledge with some tips and tricks to be able to successfully complete the design on your own. This class is appropriate for beginners.

What should you bring? A pair of embroidery scissors to snip your threads and a needle threader if you think you will need one. I also have needle threaders and scissors available for purchase in the shop if you forget yours or decide that a needle threader isn't such a bad idea after all!

Cross stitch is a great portable hobby that can keep you away from staring at a screen and have something fun to show for it in the end! Can't wait to see you there!

*Cost=$35.00

Tues, April 7th 5:30-8:30pm-Scrappy Rope Bowls

UPDATE: THIS CLASS WILL BE HOSTED ONLINE!. You will need to have your machine set up in an area where you can also view on a phone, tablet, or laptop. I am alao modifying the price to exclude the supplies Stitch was going to provide as you may be able to obtain them more easily than me shipping. I will however, have the glue stick and rope kit available if you would like to purchase it and either pickup curbside or have it shipped.

Virtually learn how to make a scrappy rope basket and use up all the pretty fabric scraps you weren't sure what to do with!

What you need to purchase/collect prior to class:

Approximately 1 yard (will use less than this, but always good to be prepared) worth of fabric scraps PRECUT to approx 3/4" wide. These don't have to be perfect, but having your strips cut is essential to being able to complete this project during class. The longer your strips, the less you will have to join more in with your glue stick. But the point is to use scraps, so they all may not be super long. I would refrain from strips that are less than 10-12 inches unless you like a challenging, tedious task.

Matching or coordinating thread, at least 600 yards. Pay attention to how much is on the spool you pick up. Cotton + Steel spools at Stitch have 600yds.

50 feet of cotton clothesline. I found some at BigLots. 100 feet for around $4.

School glue stick.

Heavy duty needle. Sometimes say "denim" or "jean". Any size from 14 to 18 will work.

*Cost of class $20 which includes instruction to construct a bowl with a base of 7" across.

This class is for the intermediate embroiderer. You should already know the basics of threading your needle and some basic stitches like backstitch, satin stitch, and french knots. We will use the basics and build on them in this session. You will not have a completed project at the end of the night, but should be well on your way with your Happy Little Trees! Over the course of the evening we will be working on 5 new stitches (so 5 trees!)

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.
