Great Class

This class was great. Catherine has a great sense of humor and made the class fun. The pace was just right, letting those who could, work ahead while providing 1:1 help for those who needed it. I finished my needle book and gave it to my granddaughter for her birthday!

Catherine is such a great teacher!

This is the third class I have taken with Catherine, and just like the first two, it was so much fun! The subject matter was a good mix of how to do the embroidery and interesting history of the embroidery and materials. Catherine is patient, helpful, and very supportive- often reminding the class that if your stitching isn't as perfect as you would like it, that's ok- you are learning. The best thing about the class, though, was how funny Catherine is- she kept us all entertained and made the class environment fun and relaxed. I can't wait to see what she offers next year!

A very good begging course and for experienced stitchers too

Greatly enjoyed learning a couple of new stitches and refreshers on what I’ve known previously. Entertaining class and open dialogue. The kit was everything we needed. Choice of colors too. I would take a workshop with Catherine Redford again.

Catherine Redford presented a well-organized, perfectly supplied class. I learned how to embroidery as a child. I've been away from it for awhile. The kit that Catherine provided was a perfect way to pick up the craft. The presentation was well paced, and Catherine was readily available to attend to student's individual needs. I look forward to completing the needle case soon. Great experience!

Wonderful Class

The kit contained everything we needed to complete a project. It was informative for both beginner and experienced needleworkers. I went away with more knowledge then when I arrived. Theach was gracious and answered all question.

Fantastic Class

I have never done needlepoint before, and I thoroughly enjoyed this class. The instructor was very patient, and explained everything very easily. She made it very interesting with some of her stories and the history of this type of needlepoint. I would highly recommend anyone at any level taking this class.
