Anne joins us for the winter season and teaches her popular one-session classes
intended for beginning to intermediate stitchers, though they are so much fun
that some of our more experienced customers sign up for them, too. Anne introduces
techniques such as open stitches, beading and creating texture and dimension to
embellish a painted canvas. As a NAN-certified instructor, she helps students
bring their stitching to a new level. Students receive the instruction, stitch
guides and materials they need to finish the class project on their own
Advanced reservations are needed for Anne’s classes.
Tony’s passion for needle art is contagious, and his dedication to creating
masterpieces in thread is legendary. He brings together a strict approach to
technique and a penchant for expression that yield stunning results in both
painted and charted canvas designs.
Tony is a devoted student of the arts, which enables him to bring an expansive
perspective to each project he encounters. Techniques and applications from
disciplines such as Japanese embroidery inform his approach to needlepoint and
expand his students’ skills as much as they inspire their creativity.
Tony’s goal is that his students learn and develop under his tutelage, and he
challenges them to reach new levels of expertise with each project they
undertake with him. He teaches every spring here at Needlepoint in Paradise;
advance reservations are required for his classes.
