What you'll learn in this embroidery class:

Design and work an embroidery you will be proud of. Our Stitch Retreats focus on further developing and enhancing your skills and knowledge. The Retreats are individualized to allow you to select a particular technique or combination of techniques in which to experiment and further build upon your own creativity, knowledge and technical skills. You will be guided through the entire process by our instructors.

You may request a portfolio review at the end of the retreat with an instructor, and you’ll be awarded a certificate of completion once you have finished your piece. It is our intention that in addition to gaining confidence and deeper skills, you will have a wonderful week doing what you love in a relaxed and fun environment.

This retreat runs from April 28-May 5. Wednesday, May 2 will be a “work on own” day which means the instructor will not be present and you will have the choice to either take the day off or work on your project on your own.
