The rapid pivot from in-person events to the virtual platform made one thing very clear – people love to take classes from the comfort of their own home! I am overjoyed with the response to our new normal and thrilled that needlepoint classes on Zoom have become a welcome addition to stitchers’ routines and daily activities.

My plan is to keep you stitching, whether in person or through the computer. I am happy to continue to use Zoom to provide weekly Stitch Development classes as well as project and technique workshops, in addition to group classes at Aristeia and out-of-town shops.

Weekly Stitch Development Classes

Email me at to sign up for a monthly session of Stitch Development.

Each class member brings their own canvas. We’ll work out stitches and thread suggestions during class so you can move forward with your project. Groups range from 8 – 10 participants. It’s productive, fun and keeps you connected with other stitchers!


Sessions (all times are listed in Pacific time):

11:30am – 1:00pm or 2:00pm – 3:30pm or 4:00pm – 5:30pm

11:00am – 12:30pm or 2:30pm – 4:00pm or 5:00pm – 6:30pm

10:00am – 11:30am or 12:30pm – 2:00pm or 2:30pm – 4:00pm


Class fees for Stitch Development are paid monthly, $30 per week.
Payment may be made via Venmo, Paypal, Zelle or Personal Check. Please confirm that space is available in class before sending payment.

Happy Stitching!

Oh, how i love to show off fabulous finishes from our classes.

A lot of skill, determination and patience went into creating these works of art. Take a look at just some of the canvases stitched in weekly classes and project workshops. You’ll be as impressed as I am!
