While private lessons and small classes are held at the shop, our event classes are held at the Hawthorne Suites up the street from us on Webster. You'll have the use of a Stella Lighting Desk lamp during class so only need to bring your basic supplies and a magnifier should you need one. Contact us if you need further information on any of our classes not found below.

Private Lessons

For both adults and children, we offer private instruction in several types of needlework. Topics generally include needlepoint, cross-stitch, embroidery, basic silk ribbon embroidery, hardanger, pulled-thread and crewel work. Call the shop to let us know what instruction you are seeking and if we can help, we'll arrange a time.

The cost is $35 per hour (no supplies are provided, although you may certainly bring your own project or purchase supplies at the shop). If you want to set up a private lesson for more than one person the fee is $35/hour per person if you are working on different projects. For a group rate on a single project each additional person is $20/hour  beyond 2 people. You may schedule multiple hours, either in one session or across more than one session. If you wish, you may also schedule a regular class for a group (e.g. beginning needlepoint) contact the shop for more details.
