Needlepoint Classes

There is always something going on at The Needle Works! Our experienced teachers and guest instructors teach a diverse and colorful spectrum of needlepoint techniques. We host ongoing classes, guest artists and courses on specific techniques all year round in our studio in Austin, TX.

We have classes and one-on-one instruction available for stitchers of any level to expand your talent and creative expression. Beginning stitchers are encouraged to start with a one-on-one lesson to learn the basics before starting a more elaborate canvas with one of our guest’s teachers.

Join other friends and stitchers for any class and create a beautiful needlepoint canvas with guidance from needlework experts. Make a beautiful display for your home, gifts for family and friends or simply share and socialize with fellow stitchers. Give us a call at 512.451.6931.

Beginner Classes

Our Beginner Classes are done one on one. We guide you in picking out that perfect canvas to start you off on your needlepoint adventure. We start with Basketweave, the is the most difficult stitch to learn in needlepoint because it is the only stitch based on the weave of the canvas. In any formal class you take the teacher will assume that you know Basketweave.  I schedule you for an hour but I block 2, just in case you want to go into a second hour. Classes are $50.00 an hour plus your materials.


Are you stumped with a canvas. Can’t figure out what stitch to do where or is a particular stitch giving you fits? Studio Time is for you. This is for the student that is working beyond Basketweave.

Classes start at 10:30a.m., 2p.m. or 11:30, depending on  the day. It is appreciated if you arrive at the start of class to guarantee  that the rotation from student to student will flow smoothly.
