Needle Point Cat Pillow
Edit
Join Us For – An Introduction to Textural Needlepoint Stitches

Come join us for 3 full days of classes that will introduce you to some of our favorite textural needlepoint stitches creating this fun cat for you.  Your class fee will include 3 days of instructions, a line-drawn design on 18 ct canvas (or 14-ct canvas if you really struggle seeing 18-ct canvas), a comprehensive stitch guide, stretcher bars, and thumbtacks.

Your threads are extra and must be purchased prior to the 1st day of class.  You will select your own threads in colors that appeal to you to make this cat uniquely your own.  You will be introduced to some of the wonderful needlepoint threads that we have available for your use.  You will learn how to “read” needlepoint stitch diagrams by learning how to set up and stitch 20 different needlepoint stitches during the 3 days of classes.  You will also be introduced to simple techniques to create three-dimensional effects for the face of your cat.

Please bring your favorite needlepoint supplies with you to the classes:  a laying tool, #22 Tapestry needles, a needle threader, needlepoint scissors (fine bladed scissors), and a needle grabber (rubber grabber or fine jawed hemostats/needle-nosed pliers).  A light and/or a magnifier is also very helpful if you have them.  Please bring your needlepoint stand or frame weight to class if you have one to make it easier for you to lay your threads as you will be using both of your hands to stitch many of these stitches.
