© Clair Rigby, Obstinate Pursuit
Welcome to Stitching On Paper! I’m so glad thatyou’ve chosen to join me on my
first adventure intocraft classdom!
This weekend, I’ll be teaching you the basics of hand
stitching and machine stitching, then
over thecourse of the next few weekends
I’ll be taking
those techniques a little further with projectsinspired by stamping, embroidery, cross stitch,quilting and string art.
Along the way I’ll be joined by so
me amazing GuestDesigners
A Learning Experience
I just want to let you all know that I’m feeling
I may have written plenty of tutorials for my blog, but I have never beforeembarked on a whole series of tutorials and calledthem a class!
Why am I telling you this? Well, let’s just say that I
know exactly how nerve-wracking it can be to trysomething new. To put yourself
and your mistakes
out there for everyone to see.And believe me, there will be mistakes
fingers willbe poked by needles; threads will be tangled andnaughty words will (probably) be uttered. Your goalduri
ng this class isn’t to
avoid making those mistakes,but to learn from them.If you will forgive me bad formatting, spellingmistakes and the odd patronising (but well meant)sentence, I promise to forgive you for your wonkystitching.
Got Any Questions?
You can leave your questions on any class related postover on my blog
and I will answerwithin the comments, as soon as I can

-mailyou if your comment is linked to you account.

collating them into a Q & A which will be available fordownload when the class is finished.
