February, 2010 through April, 2013. As a beginner in needlepoint, I signed up for stitch classes held online through the Shining Needle Society and taught by Beth Howren and Suzanne Robertson. Each class lasted two months and consisted of 12 different stitches. Beth and Suzanne supplied the threads, instructions and binder inserts. Really enjoyed these classes and learned a lot about different threads, how they felt and looked using various stitches, and where to use the stitches and/or threads on convas.
