End of Summer Stitching Weekend   

August 16 - 18, 2019

Join The Stitch and Frame Shop for a fun weekend of stitching with old and new friends alike. We will spend the weekend stitching, talking, laughing and learning new stitching techniques. What a great way to end the summer....talking, laughing and STITCHING!

Clara Blalock, from The Stitching Parlor, will be our instructor. She will be teaching a piece called "Dutch Sampler". This is an original design inspired by an antique sampler in Clara's collection. The stitches used on this project and the practice piece are: smyrna cross stitch, algerian eyelet stitch, satin stitch, rice stitch and queen stitch. Class time will be spent stitching and assembling the small practice drum with a needle book on top.
