Hot Cross Stitching Classes
The beginner classes are for people who have never done counted cross-stitch before or it’s been a while since they’ve started a project. In the beginner’s classes, you will learn how to read a pattern, thread a needle, stitch full crosses, change colours and complete a project to name a few skills. To participate in these classes, you will need to have a counted cross-stitch kit that you really want to stitch.

The intermediate classes are for people who have been stitching for a little while and want to improve the way they are stitching and master some of the specialty stitches their patterns require for an amazing finish. People in these classes will learn how to kit their own projects, master French knots and back-stitch.
