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.

Wonderful Catherine Redford Class

I actually missed the Zoom online class due to unforeseen circumstances. This is why having the two week review is the greatest thing to happen at the Stitches events. Also having the opportunity to go back and review. This isara the third class I have taken with Catherine After years of knitting, she has inspired me to segue into embroidery. The kit for this class great and I will probably order another in a different color. Catherine is pleasant, soothing, patient and organized/ Learned several stitches and I am hooked.

Another wonderful C. Redford Class

This is the third class I have taken that has been taught by Catherine Redford. She is an excellent instructor, enthusiastic and very patient and always willing to demonstrate stitches again. I have found a new love for hand stitching since taking the first class and will keep my eyes open for future classes.

Dorset Feather Stitchery Needlecase

Catherine is a delight. She teaches with energy and enthusiasm. Seeing the neat things other students have made in her classes made me take classes with her and get into embroidery, where I previously thought I would remain only a knitter and crocheter.

She taught us several stitches in the class and I finished my really cool needlecase within a few days of class.

Catherine Redford is delightful. She is organized and easy to follow. She repeats directions cheerfully if there is a question or issue. This is the second class I have taken from her and I plan to take more. I cannot wait to take a class from her in person.
