CLASSES OFFERED

Introductory Classes – I teach introductory classes in embroidery, knitting, crochet and quilting. These classes are typically 2-3 hours in length and are designed to introduce students to the basic stitches of these needlework modalities. These classes are scheduled at The Tinderbox Craft Collective in their workshop section. The classes are listed on my calendar.

Project Classes – Project classes are designed to meet you where you are and take you to the next level. They are an excellent way to learn a new technique or to expand your skills. I offer project classes in embroidery, quilting, knitting and crochet. These classes vary in length depending on the project that is selected by the student.

Instruction time is offered in 4-hour blocks, with the option to have two blocks on a single day. Project classes can be arranged for private, semi-private and small groups of students (limit of 6 students). Classes can be held in studio or off-site.

Tuition is $40 for each block of instruction in studio, with special discounts offered to groups. Groups do not need to be at the same level of expertise or study the same technique.

Kits for the beginner project class are priced at $30 per kit, and includes all material necessary to complete the project. Materials for intermediate and advanced projects will be available for purchase at the studio.

The goals for each student differ by their project and experience. As a general guideline, there are three different levels of project classes:

Beginner – At this level, a student selects a kit in the technique that they want to learn. The kits are designed to introduce the student to the basic skills in the technique, with the emphasis on the stitching skill. The project is designed to take the student between 10-15 hours to complete with 8 hours of instruction.

Intermediate – At this level, students create their own kit in the desired technique. In addition to introducing more advanced stitches, the student will learn how to transfer patterns and finish the project. The project will be designed to take the student between 30-40 hours to complete with 24 hours of instruction.

Advanced – At this level, students will complete all stages of design, including technique, material and stitch selection. In addition, students will be writing instructional material for their project. The project will be designed to take the student between 80-100 hours to complete with 56 hours of instruction.

Studio Time – Studio time is offered for any student wanting a little extra guidance on their projects, regardless of the level of the project. Registration is not required for studio time. A nominal studio fee of $5/hour is charged. If you purchase supplies for your project at the studio, the studio fee will be applied to your purchase.

MATERIALS AND SUPPLIES

While we are not primarily a retail space, we will have most materials available for purchase to complete your project. This allows for uninterrupted instruction during your project class and studio time.

I encourage all of my students to support our local needlework shops for their needlework needs. Students can enhance their intermediate and advanced projects with supplies from these shops.

I will soon also be offering a selection of kits and hard-to-find supplies in my online shop.
