Saturday Snacks and Skills Classes
June 15 — Dealing with Borders (needlepoint). You can bring in a canvas you are currently working on, or has been neglected because you just don’t know what to do with the edge, or you can take advantage of the sale and pick a new canvas. The class is $20 and you will be treated to some munchies while you learn. You can peruse our canvases here.
July 20– Santa Class. Cost is $150 ($75 due at registration), which includes the canvas, threads, stitch guide, instruction and of course some snacks. Here are the Santa canvases to choose from.
August 17 — Stranded Knitting. That is not a class about what to knit when you are stranded. It is a class on color-work. Here is an example of stranded knitting. Cost is $20 plus supplies.
I’m sure you are all interested in Georgie’s Santa progress. I know I am. So far it is looking pretty amazing.
