Cost: $30 each session, includes needlepoint project
Instructor: Mrs. Linda Burkhardt, owner of Elegant Needleworks, Inc.
The roots of needlepoint go back thousands of years to the ancient Egyptians, who used small slanted stitches to sew up their canvas tents. Archaeologist Howard Carter, who is known for discovering King Tut’s tomb, found some needlepoint in the cave of a Pharaoh who had lived around 1500 BC. Today, needlepoint offers a wide range of possibilities for self-expression. In this class, you’ll learn the techniques and stitches necessary to finish the project provided in class. You’ll receive personalized assistance making it easy for first-timers through advanced stitchers.
