Sharon Boggan of Pintangle offers online embroidery classes off and on. If you’re interested in building a repertoire of stitches but your schedule restricts you from getting out to a class, why not try one online? If you’ve ever checked out Sharon’s stitch dictionary, you know the classes are going to be top-notch.
Another great idea that she is working up can be found on her blog – a weekly stitch challenge, where she posts detailed instructions on a particular stitch each week, and we interpret the stitch, work something up, and post pictures. To me, this sounds like a great idea! Creative, fun, interactive, and – best of all – perfect for improving embroidery skills.
