Stitching On Paper _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _
© Clair Rigby, Obstinate Pursuit
Hello! Hello!
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
 Sian Fair, Mel H, Julie Kirk, Kim Dellow,  Lisa Hausman, Tricia Simmons, Jemma Sharrock,  Jennifer Grace and Lara Watson.Pretty amazing line- up, right?These talented ladies will be sharing their owninterpretation of my basic prompts - and I guaranteethat you'll be inspired to start stitching on paper tocreate your own projects.
A Learning Experience
I just want to let you all know that I’m feeling
incredibly nervous
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
. I’ll also e
-mailyou if your comment is linked to you account.
If you’re a member of the
UK Scrappers Community, then you can also leave any questions or comments (or just have a good old gossip) on theStitching On Paper Forum Thread.
I’ll be ‘collecting’ questions throughout the class and
collating them into a Q & A which will be available fordownload when the class is finished.
Sharing Your Projects
If you’re inspired by any of 
the techniques and tutorialsfeatured in Stitching On Paper, please feel free to postyour projects on your own blog, in your own onlinecommunities, anywhere!You can post a link to your projects using the Mr. Linkyin the Stitching On Paper
Introduction so that I, and all
of the other class participants, can ‘ooh and ahh’ over
your project.And
just in case the recognition of your fellow
classmates isn’t enough of an incentive to share –
at the
end of the class, I’ll be picking one participant at
random to receive a rather splendid prize!Enjoy! x
