Whether you're looking to stitch a traditional pattern or perhaps something a bit more contemporary, cross stitch is a great craft that anyone can put their own twist on. During the class, you'll learn the basics of how to thread a needle, prepare the hoop, and read a pattern to create a great piece of decor for your home or a gift for someone else. Come learn the basics of counted cross stitch with Alison from The Nerdy Octopus!
About the teacher:
Alison Flaherty has been cross stitching to pass the time for 5 years. About 3 years ago, she and her friend, Mike (who does paper-crafting), decided they should probably do something with all the crafts they were accumulating, and The Nerdy Octopus was born! She still does cross stitching to pass the time, but now that stitching is for craft shows, an online shop, consignment at stores like Little Button, and custom orders (as well as decorating her own house, of course).
