Cross Stitch Tool Kit – A course to help you be the best stitcher you can be!

COMING SOON: Classes start mid-October 2020!

This cross stitch tool kit will be an all-in-one kit for you to harness your cross stitch super powers. We will guide you through the five main areas of cross stitching – with the help of our Super Stitchee, Flossie, and her friends, you will be able to take this tool kit and be your own Super Stitchee!

The modules will release weekly, for six weeks. After the initial release, all modules will be available for self-study at your own pace – so no need to worry if you miss parts, fall behind or just don’t have time (it is Thanksgiving and Christmas season after all).

Each module will have video tutorials, diagrams, text content and a downloadable PDF notebook – so you can learn the way that suits you best! Keep an eye out for fun surprises throughout, as what is listed in the syllabus is not ALL that you will see throughout. 

Once you complete the Tool Kit you will be awarded a Super Stitchee badge and a fun little surprise gift.
