Next class: May 5 - June 2, 2014
Do you have completed embroideries tucked away in a drawer, waiting to be finished into something that can be displayed?
Would you rather not pay hundreds of dollars to have them framed?
Are you running out of wall space to display your embroidery?
Would you like to finish a piece that can stand alone (think: table runner, placemat, window treatment) or be added to a tote or jacket?
Well, we've got just the thing, and you've found it!
Finish your needlework with hemstitching
Learn the fun and flexibility of hemming fabric edges to create useful and decorative stitched pieces. These pieces can then stand alone (placemats), be creatively framed (float mounted), be stitched or snapped to a tote or jacket or pillow or folder or, or, or...! There's no end to what you can create when your needlework isn't confined in a frame.

There is no kit for this class. I hope you'll use materials from your stash. While the ultimate goal is to complete an already-stitched-but-unfinished piece, I recommend practicing on plain fabric scraps first.
If you know how to make pearl fibers, you're golden. Bring your favorite flosses and whip up some cool colors. Two and four strands will do it.
