Needlepoint Independent Study (NIS)
A new and exciting idea in needlepoint instruction, NIS classes are available for a number of different techniques. In each class you’ll be able to work at your own pace while still having access to a teacher to answer your questions.
The lessons for each class will be emailed to you once a week.
There are several class choices, including Blackwork, beginners projects, needlepoint techniques, and cross stitch classes.
Find pictures and sign up for them on the NIS page at Napa Needlepoint.
Current Class Offerings
I’m always creating new and exciting needlepoint instruction. In addition, some of my classes are only available in the email class format. Here you can learn about what is currently being offered.
I’m also always on the lookout for great class ideas. If there is something you want to learn, let me know by contacting me. If I get an idea for a class from you, you’ll receive the class free (not including the cost of materials).
I am pleased to be offering a varied slate of needlepoint classes in conjunction with The Art Needlepoint Company. There is a varied and exciting schedule of classes in stitches, techniques, and threads for all levels of stitchers. Use the contact form below to request the current schedule. You can see the list on the Art Needlepoint classes page at Napa Needlepoint.
Best of all these classes are complementary with the purchase of the class kit.
Previous classes are sometimes offered as encore classes, but if one is not on the current schedule, you can still do the class as independent study. Contact Art Needlepoint to purchase the kit and let then know you would like to take the class.
Each year I offer additional classes as well as Teacher-led Group Projects. This is an exciting concept in needlepoint instruction. A large project will be done as a cyberclass, exploring one or several aspects of needlepoint. Personalized instruction will help you develop color and thread schemes as well as lessons on the project itself as we stitch together.
Use the contact form to get on the mailing list and learn about new classes.
I will also be offering the popular Create your own Stitch Guide Class each spring. This exciting and popular class is only held once a year. Watch my blog or sign up for the mailing list to learn the details.
