    Hand Stitching Challenge
    Jan 8 – Feb 3 all-day
    Handstitchers Hearts for Friends Challenge
    Hi everyone! I’ve been missing our handstitchers get together and I know many of you are too.  Although I don’t feel it is the right time for a class I wanted to propose a challenge for all of you.  This has been a difficult year in many ways but has also brought its joys and pleasures.  Creating, crafting, sewing, quilting, knitting and hand stitching have brought joy and solace to many of us.  I thought it would be fun to use our hand stitching skills to reconnect with each other and with the people who have impacted our lives during this time.
    The Challenge will be to create a hand stitched heart to give to someone who has encouraged you or to give to someone who needs some encouragement going into this new year.
    Criteria
    ⦁ you can use any fabric but you must include wool felt somewhere in your project
    ⦁ size – no larger than 6×6″
    ⦁ a minimum of 5 different hand stitches
    ⦁ use at least one other embelishment (buttons, lace, charms…)
    There are two ways to participate.  You can email a picture to threadnpaper@shaw.ca use the subject line “stitching challenge” by Wednesday, Feb 3 or drop it off in store by Wed, Feb 3 to be included in our display.  All entries will be ready for pick up by Friday, Feb 12.  All entries both photo and in store will be entered to win a hand stitcher’s prize donated by Carol!
    Enjoy!  Missing you all,
    Carolyn

    Come and learn how to use your embroidery machine or learn how to use it BETTER. We have a new format for the embroidery class, it will be 2 days in a row so that machines and supplies can be left over night to make it easier. There will be a project for each 2 day session, which you can do, or choose to do your own thing.

    The cost is $75 for a 2 day session.

    Covid 19 update:

    We have 2 sinks available in the classroom, please have your child watch their hands upon arrival. We do our best to spread kids out at the tables, but they will be sharing an iron and possibly other tools. Because of the size of the classroom and the fact that people have to go to and from the ironing board and cutting table, you will have to assume that everyone in the class is now in your bubble. If you are concerned it’s probably best to wait to join a class until cover is less of a threat.

There is home work for this class.
