Flexible Reschedule Policy: This provider has flexible, free rescheduling for any-in person workshop. Please see the cancellation policy for more details

What you'll learn in this crafts class:

Learn how to design and cross-stitch a custom portrait in this three-hour workshop! Make a portrait of your favorite people -- newlyweds, families, roommates, BFFs, your favorite band -- the sky's the limit!

You'll begin with our provided templates to use as a jumping-off point for designing people and pet figures. Next, you'll add custom details like hair color, facial hair, glasses, clothing, and any other distinguishing features you'd like. (Don't worry, it's easy, we promise!)

Finally, you'll learn how to translate your design to fabric and work it in cross stitch. 

The finished piece makes an amazing gift for your favorite people! 

Note: It can be helpful to bring a photo of the people/pets you want to include in your portrait so that the instructor can help you translate their likeness to your pattern. 

In this workshop you will:
  • Design a custom group portrait featuring both people and pets
  • How to do the basic cross stitch
  • How to follow your design and translate it from grid paper to fabric
  • Tons of tips and tricks for successful cross stitch portrait making! 
Due to the time-consuming nature of cross stitch you most likely will not finish your piece in class, but you'll leave with your custom-designed pattern and your cross stitch work-in-progress.

Class fee includes design templates, fabric, needle, hoop, and a selection of embroidery floss to use during class. (Optional: You may find that you want to purchase additional colors of embroidery floss to complete your design after class hours.)

Refund Policy

Note: This provider has a temporary cancellation policy for COVID-19 related cancellations which is as follows: 

Due to the current situation with Covid-19, we have relaxed our cancelation policy a bit until further notice. We still cannot provide refunds for class cancelations, but for the time being, we are not requiring 48 hours notice to receive a class credit. Students can reach out to reschedule/ receive a credit at any point before the workshop takes place. 

----

Original cancellation policy (non-COVID-19):

WORKSHOP CANCELLATION POLICY

We do not issue refunds on workshop registrations.

If you register for a workshop and later become unable to attend, we will gladly offer a school credit if you notify us at least 48 hours before the workshop. We are unable to offer credits of any kind, or honor reschedule requests, with less than 48 hours advance notice. 

About Our Policy

Our workshops require a great deal of pre-planning, including ordering supplies and tools, booking staff, and making commitments to pay our instructors -- all based on the number of students who register. When students ask to cancel or reschedule at the last minute, we lose money. As a small business, we are unable to absorb these costs and still keep our class prices low.  

In fairness to all of our customers we are unable to make exceptions to our policy, including for reasons of illness or travel. If you are unable to attend a workshop at the last minute, we suggest giving your spot to a friend!

Thank you for understanding!
