Stitches in Time
Stitches in Time with Tasha Miller Griffith
Explore hand sewing through traditional techniques and modern perspectives. We’ll stitch a sewing kit together to hold all your tools, and then learn to sew buttonholes, hems, repairs and simple alterations, and a little bit of freeform embroidery. This class is great for knitters, felters, and weavers who want to add some hand-stitched finishing to their work, as well as anyone who just wants to start sewing with a needle and thread!
The capacity for this class is 15 students. This class is presented in collaboration with the John C. Campbell Folk School. There will be an optional Orientation and Closing Ceremony hosted from the Folk School campus that students can attend online.
Class Materials Needed
The materials for this class are flexible, and I hope that you can mostly use things you already have, or that are easy to find. You will need some yarn and/or embroidery floss, fabric to stitch on, hand sewing needles, and a few other notions.

Excellent instructor. A bit elementary for me so indicating that it is a beginning class in the description would be good. That said, it was a great review and very inspiring for me.

A little too simple for me but I enjoyed the design part.

Very inspiring! We learned basic stitches and saw examples of what artists have done with them. Most importantly, we learned to just jump in and begin, which released my creativity.

The class was absolutely wonderful. It was informative, fun and the experience of the instructor was exemplary. Tasha was so kind and patient, bringing more to the learning experience than expected. I feel inspired to keep "making" both by the instructor and the rest of the participants. Thank you
