Have you always wanted to learn needlepoint? Have you done a limited amount of needlepoint, but want to increase your knowledge? Then join Attic Heirlooms at our class "Beginner Needlepoint Sampler". This class will address the three types of Tent stitches, compensation, and 13 specialty stitches. The stitches include, but are not limited to, Nobuko, Diamond Leaf, Horizontal Hungarian, Old Florentine and Diagonal Mosaic. 
This design is done in Perle 3 Coton and on 14 count canvas. The approximate dimensions are: 8.5" x 6.5".
The kit will include everything you need to completely stitch this fun sampler.  There will be different colorways to choose from.

This is a beginner piece designed specifically for Attic Heirlooms and being taught by an ANG Certified Senior Master Teacher, Susan Hoekstra.
