WINTER CLASS REGISTRATION STARTS ON MONDAY, NOVEMBER 28

As we gather together for the holidays, I hope you'll take a moment to plan ahead for some exciting stitching adventures this winter. 

I am so thankful to those of you who have supported my online teaching efforts over the past couple of years. It's been so wonderful to get to know you and watch you blossom and gain confidence in your stitching abilities. I'm excited to continue sharing my expertise and growing with and learning from you as well.

To spread a bit of holiday cheer, I'm offering a couple of Holiday Specials! Purchase both the Talisman Pouch and Stitch Play classes and receive a $20 discount on the total (while spaces are available). Purchase a Talisman Pouch Kit by December 15 and get free holiday shipping. Maybe you'd even consider putting one of these classes on your holiday gift wish list or consider gifting a Talisman Pouch workshop and kit to a friend (and join in the fun yourself!). All classes are live on Zoom. All class sessions are recorded and the recordings remain available to students for two months.

Email me if you'd like to know more about these specials and/or how to register at threadborn@gmail.com.

Here we go with with the details...

STITCH PLAY
(The following images are by students who participated in the Spring 2021 class--Thank you!)

Maps & Marks by Michele L.

Explore the potential of hand stitches through a series of stitching "games" that are designed to get you thinking about stitching in new ways. Each class session focuses on a playful approach using concepts such as maps, word play, random choices, stitch combos and stitching the "wrong"way. Develop your vocabulary of stitch variations to use in future stitched work. Tuition cost $130. Supply List (no kit).
