About this Course
Stitching is FUN and it's relaxing, and best of all it's something creative you can take with you wherever you go...whether that means to the living room while you watch a movie with your family, or traveling, or in the car. And it doesn' t have to be complicated. I will teach you everything you need to know to get started with creating your own beautiful stitcheries, or adding stitching to your clothing or accessories, or even to your mixed media projects.
This course includes super easy-to-follow instructions for 7 basic stitches that might just be all you need to learn. Then we'll go over how to get a pattern transferred from paper onto your fabric. I'll also teach you some fun stitchery projects to get you started on your stitching adventures. If you haven’t done any stitching before but you'd like to join the stitching craze, you're in the right place! Let's sit together, I'll do my best to make learning fun and easy, and you'll be stitching in no time at all!
About the instructor
I love cooking but I'm not crazy about grocery shopping or doing dishes (sigh). I've live in Idaho less than 5 miles from where I was born, I've been married for 34 years, I am mother to 8 and Nana to 14. And every day I have the fun job of managing the business side of Brave Girls Club. That's me!
