needlepoint class policies & information

3 Kittens Needle Arts offers a variety of  classes to engage or challenge students at all skill levels, from very beginning to intermediate and advanced, designed to build your skills and inspire your creativity. We want you to get the most out of our classes, so all of our project descriptions include prerequisite skills. If you don’t have some of the basics down, you may want to take a technique class before taking on a more challenging project.

Studios

These 2- or 3-hour sessions provide a relaxed, informal atmosphere where you can bring your own project and enjoy the company of others with the guidance of an experienced instructor. Your instructor can assist you with interpreting a stitch guide, selecting thread, or understanding a complicated technique. Studios are available several times per month.

Level 1: Beginning

Our private one-on-one format provides the best opportunity for success; you will learn the basic needlepoint stitch (tent stitch), gain general knowledge of needlepoint, and discover the different thread choices and other important supplies that will enhance your stitching experience. Sessions are by appointment only; please contact us to arrange for a day and time that best meets your schedule and the instructor’s availability.
