give-away | Big Picture Classes

This looks so amazing – and I’m extra xcited because just recently I found (and was inspired by) the wonderful Amy Powers who is teaching it! I could see learning some great techniques, and new ways to incorporate stitching into my craft projects. I’m also thinking the timing couldn’t be better – I could gather skills and start using them for fall and winter holidays with plenty of time to spare.

Here’s more about the Happy Go Lucky Stitchalong:

What makes you happy? So happy that just thinking of it makes you happy all over again? Do you want to discover a way celebrate that happiness all the time? Amy Powers has found the perfect way to honor and remember the happiness of life’s moments…in a beautiful, personalized sampler! Embroidery doesn’t have to be perfect to be beautiful. In this class, Amy will guide you as you create a list of what makes you happy, decide on how to represent those pieces of your happiness in embroidery, and then Amy will share with you how she created this amazing sampler, through a series of videos.

Amy Powers, of the blog inspire co. and creator of the online magazine Inspired Ideas, has developed a fabulous style of embroidery that’s fun, whimsical and charming. As you stitch along with Amy, you’ll learn all about how she finds joy in small things and claims the happiness of her life…in turn, you’ll find your own joy and capture it in a lovely sampler.

Click here to check out Happy Go Lucky Stitchalong, watch Amy’s video, and register for class. Class starts the 22and of June, but remember that you have forever access – so you can create your project at any point! There is no rush.
