HAND EMBROIDERY ONLY - I do not teach machine embroidery.

Do you have trouble getting your French knots to come out perfect? Do you want to know what a French knot is? Do you want to jazz up your clothing or home decorating with some embellishments? Are you looking for a project to work on during your commute? Do you have a vintage piece you would like to repair or restore? Have you seen cool and inspiring projects on Pinterest? I can help you make anything you set your mind to.

I am familiar with almost every type of embroidery and the tools and materials to will help you create the effect you desire.

Please note, I have very little experience with computerized embroidery machines and do not provide lessons in this area of expertise. My approach to teaching embroidery is to develop the skills you may want or need to express your own creativity. I teach pure technique.

Students are expected to provide all tools and materials but I will help you find what you need for your ...

This is perhaps my favorite subject to teach. There are such a variety of things you can do with the most basic of stitches, which students can then build upon depending on their interests. My goal for my students to walk away with a confidence in creating their own designs, with techniques tailored to their specific aesthetic goals.

*No machine embroidery.

Myself and a co-worker spent 3 lunch hours with Rhiannon learning the basics of crochet. Rhiannon taught us the various stitches and patiently worked with us until we were comfortable with each one. She also directed us to an online resource to support her instruction that we could refer to as needed. This was our first online lesson of any kind and we were extremely happy with what we learned and the convenience of learning it online. Thank you Rhiannon. :)

Stella is a wonderful teacher. What I had been unable to teach myself, she taught me in no time. Patient, thorough, funny, interactive and did I say patient? And in seconds, she knew my machine better than I. And who knows, I may decide to learn a new craft just so I can continue working with her.

Embroidery is my favorite subject to teach. It offers the student endless creative possibilities. There are amazing machines that enable you to stretch your imagination beyond just sewing to decorating and personalized branding. You will learn how to hoop and set your machine for the best embroidery experience.

Experienced needlework teacher of 25 years available for eager students of all experience levels and ages! I structure my lessons so students learn what they want to learn, while also building a strong foundation of needlework skills. I specialize in counted cross stitch, typically use project instructions, and also have the following tools available to use during lessons: needles, embroidery floss, aida cloth. It is recommended that the student purchase a project to complete.
