Jo Christensen is Coming to Teach!
Have a Cup of Tea with Beatrice and Me!
June 24th-25th

Jo will teach this darling piece by Brenda Stofft.

  Prework is involved so if you want to participate you must sign up soon so you have time to do the prework.
Canvas Empowerment
June 22nd-23rd
We have two spots left in this one of a kind embellishment class.  Bring an unstitched canvas of your choice and Jo will guide you through how to select stitches and threads. Then Jo will tell you what kind of stitch and thread she would like you to select for an area. You’ll learn how to use stitch books and select stitches. The second day will be spent on technique.
Canvases must be submitted to Jo by May 15th so don’t wait to sign up.
