The fun of needlepoint is the stitching! We offer classes for the beginner, novice and advanced stitcher. Our instructors take you step-by-step through each project so that you can master a technique at any level.  In addition to classes, we have opportunities to visit our store with your current project and stitch and chat, ask questions and gather advice on a current project you currently have in progress. Have a stalled project? Bring it in and we can refresh and breath new life into it!
