Get yer stitch on!

You know how much I love embroidery. Quite honestly, learning hand embroidery was the thing that kicked me into crafty high gear and - as geeky as it sounds - really changed my life. Getting to teach embroidery is one of my greatest pleasures. I've had some awesome students, and we always have a blast in class. If you'd like to get your stitch on with me, I'm teaching a class next Tuesday night (November 11) from 6:30 - 10:00 PM. You can enroll through the Stitch Lab web site. I'll be adding more classes soon, so be sure to sign up for the Stitch Lab newsletter, too.

Here's some other stuff to tempt you:


  1. I bought some embroidery supplies today! I am hoping to learn, if I can't figure it out you just may be seeing me in a class!

    ps: decoupage was my crafty-high-gear medium!

  2. I wish Austin were a little closer so I could take your class (and about a bazillion others at Stich Lab). Know any good embroidery classes in the LA area?

  3. man, i wish i could take this class with you. it sounds awesome!

  4. Ooh! Readers! Take this class! I learned all I know from this fabulous stitchin' mama...


  5. Wish I could come!

  6. i agree embroidery is what led me to your blog, which led me to create my own blog!!!

    SO YAY! good job on teaching others!

  7. I geeked out as you think you may sound, I am right there with you. Stitching is what brings me joy, helps me feel confident and to some extent helps me feel validated as a "crafster". How much of a dork do I sound like?!

  8. Learning to sew so many years ago (at the Stitch Lab!!!) changed my life too. One day soon I'll get in on this embroidery class too. Oh to get beyond a simple running stitch with a messy back.


Thank you so much for your comments! I read every single one of them. I do my best to respond when I can.

Have fun and be nice! :)
