Notebook Classes: $55 per class
Complete your very own reference volume of stitches and threads! Each class will cover a "chapter" of up to eight stitches using a variety of threads in the student's choice of colors. Currently, classes are offered on one Wednesday morning and two Saturday afternoons per month. Up to three different chapters are offered each month; students may take as many classes per month as they choose, and classes do not need to be taken in consecutive order. A student MAY take the classes in consecutive order by attending each month during the same time slot (eg, the first Wednesday morning each month).
The small print: Attendees must have completed our beginner and intermediate classes, and each session must be reserved in advance by calling the shop at 303.761.7766. It is the student's responsibility to keep track of the chapters that he/she has completed. A list of class chapters may be printed by clicking here.
