Needlepoint Classes for Adults and Students, New Start Date: Mon. October 29

Improve your eye-hand coordination, concentration, math skills and attention to detail, all while enjoying time with your friends. Sign up for Wilton Historical Society's new Needlepoint Workshops.

Wilton Historical Society is offering a series of Creative Needlecraft Workshops, beginning with an introduction to needlepoint for adults and elementary school students. Student classes will be offered to third, fourth and fifth-graders, held after school on four consecutive Mondays from 10.29 - 11.19. Adult classes will be held on the same days. All participants are advised to take all four classes to complete their project. Click here for information on fees.

Classes will be taught by Wilton resident Moira Craw, who will focus on teaching basic stitches and techniques, working with students to create a wall hanging or holiday ornament. "Needlepoint has exploded. There are new man-made fibers with vibrant colors, interesting textures and new three-dimensional stitches. The craft has moved beyond the standard paint-by-numbers approach," explains Craw.

Registration begins this week and it is recommended that families become Wilton Historical Society members to benefit from special discounts on programming throughout the year. Students can register by phone at 203.762.7257.

All programs take place at the Wilton Historical Society, 224 Danbury Road (Route 7).

The Wilton Historical Society galleries are open Tuesday – Saturday, 11 – 4 pm and by appointment, 203.762.7257.
