Learn sixteen different needlepoint stitches as you create the Sweet Sixteen Sampler. This is a great class to learn new ways to create line and texture in your work, moving your interpretation of needlepoint designs to a new level. We will work with some interesting fibers, including multicolored threads, metallic braids and pearl cotton to do the sixteen. Stop by the shop to view the instructor's sample.
