STITCHING AT A DISTANCE
As we continue to shelter in place it’s become very clear that having something creative and productive to do is helping us pass the hours and days. The fact that we love what we’re doing makes it all the better!
One of the great things about being a needlepointer is that we are stash-keepers! I think most of us have multiple projects at home to keep us busy while we perfect our social distancing. And, if you want something fresh and new, the needlepoint shops have all sorts of canvases to ship.
But, then you might think, which threads will I use and what stitches will work?
Here is how I plan to keep you in stitches.
Technology has turned out to be incredibly helpful for those who want to continue to learn and need stitches and guidance with their canvases. I am using Zoom and Facetime every day to work with individuals and groups in my Stitch Development classes. I’m suggesting stitches and threads for each person, just as I would in a face to face class.
The bottom line is I am available to you for stitch design and thread choice consulting by phone, email or video conferencing.
EASY GROUP OPTIONS
Email me at email@example.com to sign up for a four-week class session of Stitch Development.
Each person will bring their own canvas. We’ll work out stitches and thread suggestions so you can move forward with your project. Groups range from 8-10 participants.
It’s productive, fun and keeps you connected to other stitchers!

These class options are open to all my stitchers far and wide. I’m happy to work with accommodating different time zones as best I can. My goal is to continue to support each of you in our needlepoint community. Let me know if you have an idea for another way to help you keep stitching!
Wishing you the best of health ~
