After you've mastered basic stitches, the possibilities are endless! But that can be daunting.

This class is designed to help students get a good start on stitching a complete original project of their choice. Some people start with commercial iron-on patterns, others start with a favorite drawing or piece of clip art, still others take a photograph of a pet or person and transfer it to cloth for stitching. It's also a chance to review basic stitches that didn't quite register the first time around, learn new, more complex stitches, and investigate different types of transfer processes.

Five students, one 3.5 hour class. $45.
