Event details
Bored with a wardrobe filled with plain-Jane gowns? Transform one of those ho-hum garments with a bit of embroidery, and you now have a one-of-a-kind garment that others admire!  Or, go all-out and embroider the entire surface of a coif, a pouch, a sleeve, or even a jacket!  Whether this is your first time putting needle to thread or you're an embroidery veteran, if you’ve been waiting for the know-how or the motivation, “The Academy of St.  Clare of Assisi:  Keeping You in Stitches!” will enable and inspire you! 

WHAT:  At this weekend event devoted to the art of the needle, you will:
• Spend time with fellow embroiderers, relishing the relaxed atmosphere with others who share your passion for stitching.
• Learn more about embroidery!

The Academy of St.  Clare offers you two ways to learn or share what you know.  It features:
• Small, specialized classes on single topics.  These classes are usually one hour in length and taught by embroiderers for embroiderers.  They require no special sign-up before the event.
• Long, detailed “kit” classes on beloved styles.  Afternoon “kit” classes require pre-registration and pre-payment; pre-registration starts on January 15, 2019, and ends on March 1, 2019.

• SCA name

(*) Proceed west on Route 45 West for about 17 miles, passing through the towns of Mifflinburg and Hartleton (follow speed limits here).  At the intersection of Route 235 South, turn left.

From this turn, follow signs for 235 South for approximately 3 miles through Laurelton (last chance for food, gas, and ATM) and Glen Iron.  The road makes several 90-degree turns; just before the last one, you will pass the West End Fire Company on your left.
