Searsport Rug Hooking
FREE September Mini Classes 9/9/23
This month the class is on Sept 9! The next class will be October 7
Due to the first half hour of confusion and getting everyone going we must have you select your project before the Saturday class. When we have 15-20 people trying to select kits even an hour before class it’s hard for three of use to assist you with colors and other details. Once you sign up we will email you for some project details.
We are continuing with the once a month free classes! They have really worked out well for everyone and we have a great group coming. We hope you can join us. You must pre register for the class you want so we are prepared for everyone. You check out right here online and it’s free. No credit cards needed!
Our mini classes are an introduction to your choice of our offered art forms. These are three hour classes that get you started in your choice of traditional rug Hooking, Oxford rug punching, miniature ultra punching, wool tree twisting, wool appliqué or designing your own pattern. You will enjoy our spacious classroom and lots of help. All classes are offered on Saturday afternoon. You will have three hours of instruction and can come back for help any time.
