All Day Stitch-in  

Come and join us for our All Day Stitch-ins on the second Saturday of every month. There are no costs or requirements, just a fun day for stitching with others that enjoy the same addiction.

We will start with breakfast at 8:30 AM at:

Golden Egg Omelet House
16 W Mission Ave # 101-103
Escondido, CA 92025
(760) 489-6420

Please RSVP 760-737-3113 to give us a correct count for breakfast and to see if we need to set up an additional table at the shop.

If you join us at Lunch time we usually order from a deli or bring whatever you want.

For the diehards that are still with us at dinner time we take a consensus and either go and get take out or walk to one of the nearby restaurants.

This is a fun time to get to know other stitchers and just have an uninterrupted day to do what we love the most.

Nancy's Everything Class

Instructor: Nancy Horne

Third Saturday
July 19th, Aug 16th,

This January, Nancy will be reintroducing her beloved SEASONAL HOUSE CLASS. This needlepoint is done on your choice of canvas and is hand-drawn by Nancy. Because of this, ADVANCE NOTICE MUST BE GIVEN TO PREPARE A CANVAS JUST FOR YOU! In addition to canvas options, you will be able to use colors, fiber types and stitches to create the "season" or theme and make this Victorian house uniquely yours.

Line Drawn Canvas and Stitch Guide $75.00
Cut Canvas, Stretcher Bars, Fibers - additional
*this is a GREAT stash piece!*

Nancy Horne is a wonder teacher. She can assist you at any point, no matter where you in your project you are, and give you suggestions as to what you might want to do to enhance your canvas. If you are working on one of her projects, many include stitch guides but if you want to change something - she will help you to do it.

Daily Teaching fee for All Classes
$25.00 per session

Plaid Poinsettia Class

Instructor: Dorothy

This is a two Saturday class - July 26th and August 23rd - from 10:00 to 4:00.
July 26th will involve color choice and the drawing on canvas of the poinsettia. We will also learn the plaid stitch.

This beautiful poinsettia is stitched in various plaid patterns. There will be a choice of 5 different color ways for the petals. Leaves will be stitched in Christmas green.

For the PETALS, I came up with 70 yds (5 cards) of the main color (red), 50 yds (5 cards) of the silk lame braid (green), and 30 yds (2) cards of the other main color (blue). Each color way is roughly the same.

For the LEAVES, my estimate is 4 cards of silk lame braid (SL57) and 16 total cards of petite very velvet (V622 and V623).

TOTAL supply needs are approximately 9 cards silk lame braid, 23 cards petite very velvet, your choice of outline fiber (silk lame braids or pearl cotton), 22 x 22 canvas (white/opal or eggshell/gold) and stretcher bars (22")

Minimum of 4 students.
Project Cost: TBA - dependant on fiber choices.

Teaching fee is $30.00 per session.
