Stitchmap Info

I could never describe it as well as they have.  This is a direct copy from the yahoo group page.  It is a sharing of knowledge and they teach you like grandma would have.  Best of all it is FREE to join and all classes are FREE as well.

Group Description

StitchMAP is for individuals interested in having a Mentor to help them while learning new needlework techniques. Free courses and mentoring are offered in needle arts such as Crazy Quilting, Hardanger, Redwork, Silk Ribbon Embroidery, Surface Hand Embroidery, Brazilian Embroidery, Needlepoint, Quilting, Blackwork, Color Theory for Stitchers, Cross Stitch, and other Counted Thread techniques.

Member volunteers (Stash Angels) often provide small stash enhancement packages to Apprentices of our Mentors when needed. We also are able and willing to assist any other needle artist or charitable group who may be referred to us by members of StitchMAP. We just ask that they meet certain criteria as established by our guidelines.

StitchMAP membership is open to those who are committed to learning new needlework techniques and to those who would like to help others by assuring they begin their journey into the world of stitchery with the proper tools, knowledge,and materials. A membership questionnaire is sent to new members and must be returned before full membership privileges are granted.

We have Contests and Challenges. We do Swaps, needlework classes and LABS (Looking At Building Skills). You will find helpful Links to resources, tutorials, great hints and photos for inspiration.

The group blog is called K.N.A.S.S. (K-eeping N-eedlearts A-live by S-haring S-titches). Please visit and feel free to explore there too. The link to the blog is: .

Join the fun, make new friends, learn new stitching techniques while helping others along the way. There are NO FEES involved. Pay it forward by eventually becoming a Stash Angel or Mentor.
