What exactly is a mystery class? A mystery class is just like a mystery in a book; it unfolds in chapters. With each chapter more of the mystery (how are we going to stitch this canvas) is revealed.
Mystery classes are one of the most fun things in the shop! You sign up knowing only what the canvas is that we will be stitching. How we are stitching it is the mystery. Each time you come to class (or we mail you your next kit) another section of the mystery is unveiled.
Now, you also know that if I am teaching it, it’s going to have a bit of bling. You also know I like to play with different threads and different stitches.
We meet pretty much every other Sunday afternoon (unless the class- room is booked with another teacher) and review the twists, turns and fun of the current lesson. Class is from 1 to 3 pm. Can’t join us in person? No problem, we will ship to you. The instructions have full color photos of the canvas stitched to date along with complete instructions and diagrams.
Want to read more about the mystery classes? Check out this cool article about the classes published in Needlepoint Now. A very dear student and friend called after reading the article to congratulate us, “The only thing they forgot to mention was how much fun we have.” So true, we have lot’s of fun!
Class cost is the price of the canvas plus $20 per lesson and the threads necessary for that lesson. It’s lots of fun. I hope you will join us. We typically meet at 2 week intervals.
We post close up pictures of each lesson to the blog the Sunday evening after class and maintain our discussion group for the mystery on stitcherie.
Types of Mysteries
If you are registered for a mystery class and typically have them sent, but would like to join us for just one lesson, we’d love to have you. Call and tell us your coming. It’s a fun way to spend a Sunday afternoon. We look forward to meeting you.
Mystery Makeup Lessons – a new idea!
We all love to start projects, but then life gets in the way and suddenly there are so many WIPS that we don’t know what to do first. Let’s have a stitch in and see if we can’t get rolling again. Bring any Mystery Class project that you need a little extra help on or want a push to get finished and spend the day stitching in our classroom. I’ll be there to help you review whatever you need. We’ll have lunch and just have a fun girls day.
Fee is $45/day and includes lunch. Please register early to reserve your space. Snow policy – If it snows or ices, or is otherwise nasty, we will reschedule.
