This year’s Needlepoint Beginner’s Forum begins on March 1 and is now open for registration today. This popular class is an in-depth exploration of needlepoint for beginners and others. In it, you’ll:
learn tons of stitches
get education about needlepoint tools and best practices
learn about threads
have access to huge bonuses on ebooks and projects
That’s more than you will get in in-shop or ZOOM classes that will cost so much more!
Unique to my lab are the painted canvas labs and needlepoint projects. This year there will be five labs, each including a complete stitch guide. Because canvases can be so hard to get these days, each of these canvases is painted in the USA and directly ordered by you. The majority of the labs, such as the lovely scissors case pictured here, are new to the program this year. In addition to the great labs, there will be at least two stitch-alongs, both on painted canvases. There will also be a bonus stitch-along at the end of the Forum to benefit Hearts for Hospice. That works out to more than one painted canvas project for month of the class! Each of these will let you try new threads and give you a great way to apply the stitches you’ve learned.
Plus there are great monthly projects that will give you more great ways to expand your skills. The pictures you see in this post show you some of the great projects we’ll do.
You are probably thinking to yourself that this class must be costly. I’m committed to making needlepoint easy and affordable, with this class being only $49. That’s $49 for twice-weekly postings, along with all the projects, labs, and stitch-alongs. You’ll still need to buy the canvases and other materials, but this is one of the best bargains in needlepoint around. The five stitch guides alone would cost double the price of the class.
Some materials and activities will be on groups.io in a private group. It’s free to join. This platform will create a permanent deposit of our materials and will allow us to show off our work, chat, and discuss issues.
The Forum lasts from March to mid-September and includes all the posts, stitches, projects, labs, and stitch guides for the low price of $49. This is by far the most complete beginning needlepoint course around. You’ll benefit directly from my 50+ years of stitching needlepoint and my 25+ years of working in the needlepoint industry. Through the group, you’ll have direct access to me with an unlimited opportunity to ask questions and learn. It’s an opportunity too good to pass up!
