Don't go crazy deciding on colors of floss and stitches to use for your next project. Let this class relieve your fears. You will learn basic color theory painlessly as well as add a bevy of more than two dozen surface embroidery stitches to your repertoire using a rainbow of 36 thread colors.

The resulting 12" pillow will show off your skills as an embroiderer beautifully.
