The Flying Needles offers classes designed to help you learn the art of needlepoint basics or needlepoint embellishments.
As the owner of the shop for the past 18 years, I see so many completed needlepoint canvases coming to me for finishing that have been stitched incorrectly. After much time and money has been put into your needlepoint my philosophy is “why not invest a little more time and money and learn to stitch correctly and have a beautifully stitched canvas to show for it.
Basics class - $65.00 for 2 hours, all supplies included.
Add dimension and charm to any canvas. As they say in the needlepoint world, “Bring your canvas to life” These classes are designed to teach you to look at your needlepoint canvas in a new way. Using a wide variety of needlepoint stitches and fibers to truly bring out the best in your work and have fun along the way.
We also encourage stitchers of all levels to come and join us for open stitching. We all learn from one another and I’m always available for assisting stitchers in what thread or stitch to use. If extra time is needed I’m available for private sessions.
Call the shop for more information or to make an appointment. (727) 581-8691
