Classes and Retreats

We will keep a list of OPEN classes and retreats.  Once something fills we will take it off the site as to not tempt you.

Needlepoint 201 Class

Take your needlepoint project to the next level, by adding some unique & simple stitches with our very own David Schaff!

This class will concentrate on applying simple needlepoint stitches, other than, basketweave, to your needlepoint project. These stitches will be simple and not complex and will enhance your artwork.

Please bring a canvas you would like some needlepoint stitches on. Perhaps a canvas, that is not super complex or with only tiny painted areas, focusing more with a design which has a tree, building, Santa, sky, land area or animal. I would love to pick out a thread(s) to use for the stitch(es) and give my thoughts - David Schaff.

Thursday, May 26th - Register HERE

Carolyn Hedge Baird's Fall 1, 2 or 3 Day Class

September 29, 30 and October 1, 2022

Because of the limited spots, the class fee is non refundable.  

*** If you only do one day, much of that day will be dedicated to thread pulling and not as much time on instruction.   CLICK HERE TO REGISTER
