Jingle In July - A Needlepoint Retreat

July 24th, 25th, and 26th, 2019 in Tuscaloosa, Alabama.

Jingle in July
July 24 - 26, 2019

Spend two and a half fun-filled days stitching on the projects of your choice with Ellen and a small group of people who love needlepoint just as much as you do - and get all the help you need from an expert teacher!

You can relax and meet new friends... make lots of progress on some of those UFOs that have been languishing in the closet... and definitely learn some new tricks, tips, and techniques - all while being pampered with some good old fashioned Southern hospitality in a beautiful antebellum mansion in historic Tuscaloosa, Alabama.

You may be wondering why, exactly, you should trust me to be your Needlepoint Guide. Well, here's a little bit of background info about me...

I've mentored hundreds of stitchers just like you and helped them develop their skills so they could confidently create one-of-a-kind needlepoint treasures. 

I love sharing time-tested needlepoint success strategies and systems that I've developed during my 25 + years of teaching in my own shop and around the USA to provide stitchers (like you!) with a true advantage in pursuing their needlepoint hobby.

My mission is to help more stitchers overcome their challenges and frustrations so they can stitch with confidence. 

I'm the founder of The Stitcher's Club – a premium membership program that empowers needle artists by providing them with resources, relationships and valuable training materials.

And I've written articles and designed projects for a variety of needlework magazines. I'm also the author of The Embroidered Home

Spend two and a half fun-filled days stitching with Ellen in a small group setting where you'll receive one-on-one instruction and enjoy the camaraderie of other stitchers who share your love of needlepoint. 

What's included?

  • a welcome reception
  • limited edition swag bag filled with oodles of stitching treasures
  • two and a half days of instruction with me
  • lunch and refreshments each day (3 days)
  • dinner on Wednesday evening at The Side by Side Restaurant, a unique dining experience created by Chef Chris Hastings, 2012 winner of the James Beard Award.
  • round trip transportation each day to the event site (from The Hampton Inn)
  • an exclusive event canvas designed especially for us by Pepperberry Designs (a cutie-pie snowman!) + the threads and stitch guide!
  • a captivating program on different ways to finish your needlepoint projects by textile expert Judith Carter
  • and, of course, a host of Serendipity surprises

We'll have all of these rooms to ourselves

+ the front parlor.
