Over the course of four weeks, we will learn how to cross stitch, and at the end of the four weeks, we will have a completed project which you can keep or give to a friend! During the four live class meetings, we will cover the following: Class #1 - * Prepping your supplies (supply list included); measuring, cutting and graphing the aida (fabric). * Prepping the cross stitch project; placing aida in the hoop, having supplies at hand * How to read a cross stitch chart (provided) Homework...
Learners can come into the class with little or no knowledge of cross stitch and at the end of the four weeks, have a beautifully completed project and a newfound love for this fun and easy craft!
I am a hand-embroiderer with several years of experience and training. My specialty is cross stitch but I am trained in the art of embroidery as well. I own a small business creating heirloom cross stitched portraits by commission and teach in classroom settings as well.
Between weeks 1-2, 2-3, and 3-4, students will have stitching to be completed at home. We will go over each section during that week's class so that the homework is clear, and if students get stuck or need help, we'll go over any issues encountered during the next class. The entire image must be stitched by the fourth class meeting so that we can use that class to put the finishing touches on our project so that it may be displayed or even gifted!
Aida (cross stitch fabric) - 14 count, white,at least 15 “ X 15 “ in height and length. Complementary fabric - at least 15 “ X 15 “ in height and length. This will be added to the back of the cross stitch project once it is complete for a pretty finished look. It can be neutral or patterned. Size 24 or 26 cross stitch needle - (brands are not as important as making sure you have the proper size). Needle minder - this magnetic (and often cute!) little helper will keep your needle safe and secure when you’re not stitching. Embroidery scissors - often small and quite sharp (please be careful!) An inexpensive pair are just fine. Embroidery hoop - holds your fabric (you can use your cross stitch hoop or a Q-Snap frame). Useful Extras: Reading light (anything from a tiny one to clip onto your hoop, to larger desk or floor light). Project bag - this can be any type of small to medium bag that you designate just for your cross stitching supplies. Highlighter - used to mark off your pattern as you stitch. This allows you to still see the pattern at large but keep track of what you’ve stitched so far). Fabric pen - this is used to “map” a few key places on your prepared aida fabric Pinking shears - used to cut the edges of the aida to help prevent fraying. Narrow strips of masking tape may also be used. Ribbon - this is used to create a pretty way to hang the cross stitch hoop once it is completed. Chose a neutral or complementary color to those used in the cross stitch project (I recommend white or black).
45 minutes per week in class, and an estimated 1 - 2 hours per week outside of class.
Parental approval of the independent use of embroidery scissors, pinking shears and an embroidery needle (which is more blunt than a traditional sewing needle, but indeed still potentially sharp) will need to be provided to Teacher prior to the start of class in order to remain enrolled. Parental Guidance - parent access to Google Docs is required in order to access and print out the pattern we will be using in class. Link will be provided once enrolled.
