"Learn Counted Cross Stitch" Class Coupon

My "Learn Counted Cross Stitch" online video class and DVD are now both available (I'm so excited)....and to celebrate, Annie's has sent me a special coupon code to share with my friends and fans (keep reading to find out how you can save $5.00 on your purchase)! If you are (or if you know someone who is) interested in learning to Cross Stitch or would like a refresher course on essential Cross Stitching skills, then this video class is perfect for you.

It is a beginner class and covers all the basics - materials, tools, and notions - preparing for a project - how to read a chart - step-by-step Cross Stitch techniques - creative finishing ideas - pretty much all the fundamental information you can imagine. We cover Cross Stitch, Back Stitch, Partial Stitches, and pesky French Knots....and there are five exclusive projects that accompany the class.

Annie's online classes include downloadable and printable class projects in PDF format in addition to the online video content. The five exclusive projects that accompany my video class work through the seasons...starting with a very simple spring project (Cross Stitch in one or two colors)..."Springtime Magnets"...

The second project introduces Back Stitches and multiple colors -"Summertime Treasure Boxes"...

Project number three is "Autumn Greeting Card" and it introduces Partial Cross Stitches...

The fourth project revolves around French is a set of "Winter Hoop Ornaments"...if you struggle with French Knots this class has an entire segment (with up-close video footage) that will help you master these pesky knots...

The final project combines all of the previous skills into one project...a "Seasonal Sampler" may choose to stitch the entire design or your favorite segment(s)....

Needlework is truly my passion and obsession and I worked hard to write a comprehensive video script that showcases the time-honored tradition of Cross Stitch. I did my best to cover all the essentials and give the viewer as many details and examples as goal is to have the viewer/student feel comfortable and at ease learning...I want you to enjoy every stitch!

This 1 hour and 53 minute video class is broken down into 13 segments...and was professionally filmed in Annie's studio with top notch production, high quality cameras, and a full set.
