Needlepoint Classes

At The Needle Works, we host ongoing classes that cover a diverse and colorful spectrum of needlepoint techniques held year round in our Austin studio. We have classes and one-on-one instruction available for needlepoint artists 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 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.

Upcoming Classes

Private Classes

We offer private stitching classes for students of all skill-levels. From absolute beginners, who need to learn the basics of needlepoint, such as the Basketweave stitch, to intermediate/advanced students who need specific help with an ongoing project. We offer assistance from start to finish, from helping you pick out that perfect canvas, to making thread selections, stitching suggestions, and more!

Private classes are typically booked in one hour sessions charged at an hourly rate. This does not include the cost of materials. Please call the shop (512) 451-6931 or contact us below to schedule.

Studio Time

Are you stumped with a canvas? Can’t figure out what stitch to do where? Is a particular stitch giving you fits? Studio Time is just for you! These open sessions are held for stitchers of all skill-levels with questions on their current project.

Studio Time is offered weekly. We max out at three students per class to allow for plenty of time to address everyone's questions. Please call the shop (512) 451-6931 to reserve your studio time spot. We ask that you arrive at the start of class to guarantee a smooth rotation from student to student.
