The craft of old fashion needlepoint for wall art and cushion covers is having a resurgence. In this introductory class students will learn how to transfer a simple design onto a needlepoint canvas, how to select materials and read needlepoint charts, and how to make needlepoint stitches with good tension and a clean finish. Come to class with a surface pattern in mind or choose from a few templates here.
