Laura offers a variety of class and workshop possibilities to fit the personality of each shop and the needs of the stitching community.
Project Workshops – In these workshops, everyone works on the same canvas. Laura will guide stitchers through every area on the canvas using her stitched sample and personally written stitch and thread guide. Laura demonstrates techniques and stitches several times during workshops to be certain every participant has a chance to see exactly how to get it done. For more details, check out the Project Workshops page.
Private lessons are given in one-hour increments. The student has Laura’s full attention and can get in-depth assistance on the project(s) of their choosing. Please bear in mind that each shop may have it own restrictions about canvas and thread selection/purchase.
Some call this Canvas Embellishment. Laura likes to think of it as working together with the student to interpret the artist’s vision to make it their own. In this small group setting, Laura works with each individual to chart stitches and threads for their chosen canvas.
Stitch and Thread Guides
Laura has written and published stitch and thread guides for numerous canvases from several designers. Check out our available stitch guides. Currently, guides may be ordered through Laura or the independent needlepoint retailers. Please contact Laura for wholesale/retail pricing.
Stitch and thread guides are printed and bound upon order. Please allow time for production when ordering.
Custom Stitch and Thread Guides
Once in a while someone falls so in love with a canvas that they absolutely have to have it, although they don’t have a clue what to do with it! Laura does accept custom stitch and thread designs projects as her schedule allows. Please contact Laura via email for further details.
Themes and Schemes for Amazing Needlepoint!
Laura has created her always expanding menu of fabulous, half-day classes built around a specific theme. These are somewhat quick paced classes where students learn 8 stitches or techniques on their “doodle canvas with purpose!” Optional folders to house each canvas and instructional materials are available so each stitcher can have this as a useful reference tool.
