Description
Join America's favorite stitcher Shay Pendray as she demonstrates how to create Sampler 5, a variation of a school girls stitching lesson. Videotaped from the Needle Arts Studio Public Television set, Shay will walk you through the stitches on all 13 bands of her original sampler with clear instruction and how-to demonstrations. Each band of Sampler 5 highlights specific stitching techniques, making this a learning experience for beginning stitchers and those familiar with the craft.
