Belinda Balemans starting doing needlework sitting on her grandmother's knees, and over the years, learned to become an expert at many different types of needle work.  Now, with this new class, she is beginning to share her extensive knowledge with you. Her interactive lessons in the craft will be spiced with the history of needlework, stories of drama and high intrigue, genealogy, coded spy messages and historical artwork.

Ms Balemans will lead students through hands-on learning, as she teaches a variety of needle work techniques including needlepoint, embroidery, cross-stitch, and crewel work. She will provide you with a variety of patterns, but you can also bring your own projects or patterns if you wish.  Pieces of needlework become family heirlooms, and your piece may be treasured and  handed down over the generations.

Aida cloth
Needles (a package of mixed needles will work)
