A Year in Stitches
A Year in Stitches is a yearlong, monthly class series where you will learn 4 new, exciting, decorative stitches that correspond with a designated monthly theme or effect. I incorporate into each class a variety of exquisite, specialty threads, ribbons, beads, techniques and more each month. As you work through this class, you will create your own reference binder complete with 48 stitched samples, 48 graphs and any detailed, personal notes. Every year is comprised of new stitches with little to no duplication. Great joy is found in this unique class experience through the development of wonderful relationships with other students in the class who will be together throughout the year. I can’t tell you how many times I have had students say they look forward to this class / day the mos... it is the highlight of their month! I hope you will reach out to one of the 6 collaborating shops to join us.
For those wanting a more personal, hands-on class, I offer private and semi-private lessons to address any of your stitching questions. This is a great opportunity to receive suggestions and guidance on stitch choices, thread selection, embellishments and more. I am also equipped to demonstrate and teach you techniques that could include beading, ribbon work, detailed stitches and more

I have really enjoyed the Year in Stitches class series
You are very patient with the various levels of stitchers. Provided a bullion needle for the knots class…game changer!! Your verbal clues/tips are very clear and easy to follow. Well worth taking this class. Thank You

I have over 20 years of experience stitching needlepoint.
Stefanie Chase, The Joy of Needlepoint, is a native of South Carolina residing in Greenville. As a young child I began cross stitching , moved to knitting and then to Needlepoint close to 20 years ago. Teaching brings me great joy through interpersonal, hands-on instruction with each student in hopes of bringing confidence to the student. The special relationships developed with students, shop owners and designers has been a beautiful blessing and brings me great joy. Do More of What Brings You Joy
