My name is Leona Cole and I’m starting a website with canvases to sell and offering stitch guides for any canvas that you may have. I worked in a needlepoint shop for 17 years and have decided to start my own business. This will be a web-based business for now.
I have taught many classes and am willing to come to your area to teach a class. I usually work with your canvases. Each canvas can be different. I teach all levels of stitchers in the same class from beginners to advanced. I can make the stitch guides easy or hard according to the preference of the individual stitcher. I have you send the canvases to me in advance of the class and I work up a stitch guide and pick threads. I will work with the threads you have bought. I limit my classes to 20 students.
I have taught classes for the Jackson Stitchery Guild and the Montgomery ANG. I can provide references if needed.
I guess you are wondering why I’ve named my business Three Dogs Stitching. I have 3 Jack Russell Terriers and love them very much and wanted a unique name.
I’m thinking about starting a Kennel Club and having different canvases and stitch guides for each month of the year.
