This class will be designed to help you make your own stitch guide.  While we have many stitch books available for you to use in class we recommend that you have a copy of "Stitches to Go" as you main reference.  At the first class we will decide what background stitches you would like to use and depending on the type of box you may choose some other stitches for other parts of the box.  Threads and embellishments will also be picked out.  If you want to do ribbon flowers, the Ribbon book is optional and the purchase price will be $25.  This book is very helpful when making the ribbon flowers as well as other stitches.
 For the second class we will continue to plan out the rest of the boxes.  For those wishing to learn ribbon flowers we will break into 2 groups toward the middle of session 2.
This class will be limited to 8 people.  A deposit of $45 is due by September 7th along with your box choice.
 In order not to take up class time we ask that your canvas is mounted on stretcher bars prior to class.  Please check with the shop as to what size stretcher bars will be needed, check your stretcher bar stash or order the correct size from the shop.

Each dress will be stitched differently - this will be a great teaching canvas if you want to learn beads, sequins, ribbons and stitch with some fun threads like Flair and Frosty Rays.
