I offer classes in smocking, embroidery, heirloom sewing and silk ribbon embroidery. All class fees include materials unless kit fees are noted. Classes change monthly so check to see if there is something you're interested in. I will always try to accommodate customers if they are asking for a certain class or a technique they would like to learn.
