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!
JANUARY 2020Friday, January 17th 6-8:30pm-Stitch, Bitch, N' Sip
We all need a chance to destress and who amongst the crafting community don't have one or more projects sitting around that could use some time and attention. Register for a FREE seat (sewing machine station-6 available or comfy seat-4 available) and get out of the house for a few hours, socialize, and sip your favorite beverage. We always have a good time!
Instructor-None. Everyone is working on their own projects.
Thurs, January 23rd 6-8:30pm-Textured Trees Intermediate Embroidery
We put it to a vote and the trees won! I will say that I am already about halfway through the sample and am having a lot of fun with it. 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!
What you need to bring to class: Embroidery Scissors/Thread Snips
What is provided: Kit with 2 needles, 6" hoop, fabric with design transferred, instructions, and DMC floss. Colors may vary from what the sample and pictures show. These are happy little trees. They want to be different! :)
*Cost of class-$30
Tues, January 28th 6-8:30pm-Scrappy Rope Bowls
Come 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 bring/purchse 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.
*Cost of class $28 which includes instruction as well as 50 yards of rope and a glue stick to construct a bowl with a base of 7" across.
Instructor: Angie Miller
Thurs, February 6th 6-8:30pm-Sweetheart Bear
This little project is a hand sewn project that uses some basic embroidery stitches and can be customized to be a girl or boy bear. It can wear a bow on its' ear or a tiny scarf. You could even omit the heart and put a tiny neck tie on it.
These would be very cute to give to your someone special this Valentine's day!
This is a beginner friendly project. Only knowledge you need is being able to thread a needle for embroidery.
What you need to bring to class:
Small sharp scissors, thin marker/pen/or fabric pencil for tracing the pattern pieces, Pins, embroidery needle, thimble (if you use one)
What is provided: Instruction, pattern, felt, embroidery floss and ribbon (if desired)
P.S. As soon as I get my sample done, I will post a pic! I think I may make a boy bear with a tiny bowtie.
