What’s it all about?
Cross-stitch is making a comeback! Just like the art of macramé, everything that’s old is new again. Learn (or re-learn) the easy and fun art of turning little thread x’s into beautiful/quirky designs. By the end of class, you’ll walk away with a bookmark you’ve made yourself.
What will we cover?
We’ll start off with the basics: what counted cross-stitch is, what kind of materials you use to do it, and how to make that perfect x. You’ll learn the technique of back-stitch too. You’ll cross-stitch your initial onto a beautiful bookmark — or, for adventurous people, you can even create your own design. You’ll never think about cross-stitch the same way after this class!
