Cross-stitch is making a major comeback. It is a great way to give creative, customized gifts to friends and family. It is also a therapeutic, almost meditative hobby activity that can be done anywhere. You can embrace your sassy and subversive side or go for a more traditional stitch. Either way, you'll need a good foundation.
In this class, I will take you through the basics of cross stitch: reading the pattern, selecting materials, threading the needle, and of course, the stitching itself. I will provide all of the materials necessary for your first cross-stitch project and we will stitch it together. What you don't finish in class you can take home to complete in your own time.
You will get to choose from 5 different original stephXstitch patterns. (Chicago Flag, Per My Last Email, I Can't Even, Holy Balls, and I Heart my Bike)
Class is BYOB for relaxed stitching ;)
I will provide a full StephXstitch kit: fabric, embroidery hoop, needle, embroidery thread, written instructions, handouts, and your pattern. There will also be scissors for you to use.
Class sizes are capped at 20 so I can give everyone individual attention and help with stitching. So grab some friends and you favorite beverage and come learn to stitch with me!
