This class session will be on Needle Tatting for beginners, to learn the basic double stitch, picots, & joins. Each student will make a medallion, which can be worn as a pendant.
Cost: $25.00 for 3-hr class session per student, in small groups (no credit cards accepted). Private lessons are available for an additional fee.
Supplies needed: Tatting needles (size #3-0 & #5-0), or assorted doll needles (3"-4" long, similar in diameter to the cotton thread, with large eye); Crochet cotton or perle cotton thread, size 5 or 8 or 10 or heavier; Needle threader (sturdy with small metal hook preferred, by LoRan); Small steel crochet hook (recommend any size 2-6, 1.8-2.25 mm); Scissors; Reading glasses (as needed).
I am offering classes on either Quilting or Needle Tatting or Crochet at both Hobby Lobby stores in Knoxville, TN. I am also teaching sessions on Monday or Tuesday mornings, Thursday or Friday afternoon/evenings, and many Saturdays. Students can request special sessions at other times if a classroom is available.
The class taught on each date will be determined by what students request when they pre-register with me. Students must preregister in advance (2 days preferred) to select the class topic & date/time.
A variety of class options are available, teaching a range of skills, and most are 3 hour classes. See the listing of quilting, needle tatting, & crochet classes on my page at myquiltplace.com/profile/MonicaSchmidt.
Arrive up to 15 minutes early for each class, to allow time to set up (especially for quilting classes using a sewing machine) & make your payment.
Supply list will be e-mailed to students (from me) after they preregister. Please allow enough time to receive your supply list & purchase all the supplies prior to class.
Kindly support Hobby Lobby when you purchase class supplies, so that the classroom space remains available. Hobby Lobby has a good selection of needles for tatting, crochet hooks, cotton & perle cotton threads for tatting or fine crochet, yarns, 100% cotton fabrics (including Kona solids), quilt batting, and basic quilting & sewing supplies.
Class sessions will not be held unless a minimum # of students preregister. I will call you directly if a class has to be cancelled.
Please do not come to the store for a class session unless you have registered with me in advance. I do not come to the store unless students have pre-registered. I only print class handouts for those who have pre-registered.
The store does not provide sewing machines and does not handle any registration details for the instructors.
