Christmas in July

What if...

You could learn a whole bundle of stitches (and threads!) perfect for embellishing your holiday themed needlepoint canvases from an expert teacher? 
You could get professional tips for making those stitches FIT into the spaces on YOUR canvases?
And what if you could do all that from the comfort of your very own home - in your jammies - without even having to walk out your front door?
SOUNDS TERRIFIC...SIGN ME UP!

Well, My Friend - You Can! 

On July 24th, we'll embark on a brand new needlepoint adventure designed to help you develop your skills and expand your stitch repertoire so you can become a more confident stitcher. 

No more wasting precious stitching time on frogging those stitches that didn't turn out like you thought they would.

No more second-guessing your stitch selection or wondering if the thread you chose will actually work.

And no more projects abandoned in utter frustration and disappointment.

WHAT WOULD IT BE WORTH TO YOU IF...

  • You could learn 10 new stitch and thread combinations that you could use on your needlepoint canvases right away?
  • You could stop wasting time doubting your stitch and thread choices and spend more time actually working on your projects?
  • You could develop your needlepoint skills from the comfort of your very own home - and on YOUR schedule?

 

What's this Christmas in July Needlepoint Workshop all about?

Great question - and I'm so glad you asked...


The Christmas in July Workshop is an online needlepoint workshop designed to teach you oodles of decorative stitches that you can use to embellish your needlepoint canvases - and there are lots of other goodies, too!

TEN NEW STITCHES!

I'll guide you, step-by-step, through each stitch/thread combo and share the different ways you can use them on your holiday themed needlepoint canvases. And as an added bonus, you'll be able to use lots of the stitches on your other canvases, too. I'll show you how! 

Each stitch includes downloadable support materials to ensure that your
Christmas in July experience is a smashing success. 

 

 

STITCH DIAGRAMS

You'll get two stitch diagrams for each stitch! One diagram - in full color - shows you exactly how to work the stitch, step by step.

And the other diagram is left "open" so you can use colored pencils or markers to see what the stitch would look like in different thread color combinations.

 

EXCLUSIVE STUDENT PORTAL

After the live workshop ends, you can access your Christmas in July Needlepoint Workshop and all the support materials in one convenient location. 

The student portal includes the workshop recordings, your workbook, stitch diagrams, stitch demonstrations, FunSheets, exclusive patterns, bonuses, and more - all designed to help you become a more skillful and confident stitcher.

 

LIVE Q & A

Throughout the workshop, you'll be able to ask questions and get instant feedback - as if you were sitting around a table with Ellen and your stitching friends. 

SURPRISE BONUSES

I always like to include "lagniappe" for my students, so be on the lookout for surprise bonuses when you join the Christmas in July Needlepoint Workshop. 😉

In short, the Christmas in July Needlepoint Workshop will provide you with a host of needlepoint stitch/thread combinations that you can use to embellish your needlepoint canvases in new and exciting ways.

If you've been searching for a way to get out of your rut and add to your stitch repertoire, then you're going to L-O-V-E the Christmas in July Workshop!

If you're always second-guessing your stitch choices - and you're tired of spending more time ripping than stitching - then you're going to be dancing a jig when you see all of the tried and true stitch/thread combos I've curated just for wonderful Y-O-U!

And if you struggle to find time to stitch, well, this is really a "no-brainer" for you. Where else can you get more than ten stitch/thread suggestions, stitch diagrams and tutorials, and help-on-demand - all at the click of one little button
 

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.

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. 

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.

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

 

WHAT YOU'LL LEARN IN JUST ONE DAY...

  • more than ten stitch/thread combinations that you can use right away on your needlepoint canvases
  • targeted diagrams for how to execute all ten + stitches on your projects
  • a checklist for which threads work best on the different mesh sizes of needlepoint canvas
  • out-of-this world tips that will help you compensate any canvas embroidery stitch
  • guidelines for pairing threads with stitches to get the best effect

  • plus lots more! 

"Patience is the first thing that comes to mind when I think about Ellen as a teacher. She has helped so many times with stitch guides with my needlepoint and she always has a suggestion about what stitch would work best. Never in a way that was pushy – it was always suggested as an option. She is very good at making adjustments. I could not recommend anyone more than Ellen to teach needlepoint."

Susan M.

"I highly recommend Ellen as a teacher. She has taken me from beginning needlepoint to now where I can create my own stitch guides. Not only is she very patient, she listens carefully to your questions and finds solutions . You are never made to feel embarrassed, regardless of your skill level. She is extremely friendly and kind."

Ann W.

"Ellen has a vast knowledge of all things needlework! From needlepoint, embroidery, knitting, crochet, to weaving! She is always willing to help out with any project – big or small, easy or difficult! I cannot count the number of projects Ellen has helped me with! With needlepoint, Ellen is especially talented with decorative stitches and helping embellish canvases! I would highly recommend Ellen for teaching any type of needlework!"
