Sign up early for our Ho Ho Ho class on March 31, 2012 by Mary Lake Thompson for Melissa Shirley. This darling piece will be taught by Paula Schmidt. Paula has very innovative tricks up her sleeve. Let's just say the ornament spelling out Ho is glass! Really! It will be a very fun piece to work on. Plenty of time to get it finished before the holidays. As always, classes are open to local and long distance BeStitchers.  

The fully kitted piece is $185.00 + $50.00 educational fee includes stitch guide and "how to videos"  Make your reservations today!


Wednesday nights: Embellishment Classes with Paula. Especially for our working BeStitchers. Mark your calendars for every Wednesday 5-7:30PM. Relax and unwind while being creative with Paula. Be ready for an adventure!


Saturdays:  Bling your Canvas to Life with Alice AM or PM.  Bring along or purchase a new invigorating piece to work on. Alice will take you and the canvas to a new level.


Beginner/Refresher classes available.


*Just a reminder to reserve your space for all classes.



We hope you had a wonderful Valentine's Day. Please know you are our Valentine EVERY day of the year!

Melissa Shirley's new tea cup Valentine is available fully kitted for $300 - Stitch Guide included!


January was a big month for BeStitched! We attended the wholesale show which was actually in Phoenix this year. We walked and walked and walked and found fabulous new canvases and goodies which have started coming into the shop. It is like Christmas all over again. So many fabulous new designs by so many talented designers!

We also hosted Kelly Clark at BeStitched to teach her gorgeous "Crazy Quilt" piece. Fabulous new techniques on this canvas. Kelly is so talented. We have very exciting news, Kelly is working on a Christmas and Halloween version of the CQ canvas. BeStitched will be one of the first to offer these jaw dropping pieces. Stay tuned...

Take a look at these two gorgeous pieces. Room with a View in Paris and The Library. I would be VERY happy in either of these two rooms. Who wouldn't be? Enjoy stitching them while you are envisioning yourself in those lovely chairs!

Graphic Waves by Sharon G. 

Sharon G Needlepoint Canvas 

Join us for class on April 21 and 22, 2012.

Sharon G will be at BeStitched teaching her magnificent new piece, Graphic Waves. Wait until you see thist in person. No need for a "flash" on the camera. It has plenty of sparkle. Sharon's trademark use of sparkly Kreinik and beads shows the spectacular movement of natures ocean waves. This is a "must do class"...not to mention Sharon is lots of fun! The canvas cost is $132.00. She is still putting the finishing touches on the canvas, so full kit price to follow. Available local and long distance as always with "how to" videos. We are taking canvas reservations now. Sign up today!

You have seen it before, now see it again! We are offering this gorgeous "bling" crown canvas in solid gold or platinum. Equally stunning in both options! Kirk and Hamilton designed this unique canvas exclusively for BeStitched and did we ever take advantage of the "wow" factor it had to offer. Julia Snyder did a marvelous job on the platinum version and our very own Alice Hall designed the "gold" version. The Gold Crown is $150.00 plus the class $40.  The Silver Crown is $125.00 plus the class $40.00 (in store)
