About the class

The class is online, self paced, and accessible at any time!

Part 1: Round Ornament Finishing is designed to recreate an in-person class, where I take you step by step through the entire finishing process. The videos are in real time so you can see each step and work along from start to finish! Each video step builds on the last until you have a completed round ornament.

Part 2: Square and Rectangular Ornament Finishing builds on Part 1, focusing on the unique aspects of square and rectangular ornament finishing.

The Bonus Section dives deeper into topics along with alternative techniques such as How to Lace an Ornament - for those who prefer to avoid glue, and Glueing on Your Cording - for those who prefer to avoid sewing!

Should I Take This Class?

  • Who is this class for?

    This class is for anyone who loves to get crafty! If you dislike waiting a long time to hang that beautiful stitching up in your home, this class is certainly for you. This class is also for any stitcher who wants to take back a third of their crafting budget and redirect it to canvases and threads!

  • Who is the class maybe for?

    Anyone who prefers to send their ornaments to the finishers but wants to be ready for exciting life events! Did you find out you’re a first time Grandma in September? - Have that ornament ready by Thanksgiving! Did your best friend just get engaged? - Whip up her new monogram and have it ready by the engagement party.

  • Who is this class NOT for?

    Not everyone is going to enjoy the ornament finishing process. If you love to needlepoint but aren’t fond of a big pair of scissors, hand sewing, or getting your fingers dirty with glue…send that ornament to the finishers and keep working through that stash.

  • "The explanations and the demonstrations were pitch perfect. I believed that I could finish an ornament after watching the videos"..."I felt as though Abby was right there with me, guiding me and encouraging me. To convey that on video is a skill and a gift. Truly. I derive even more enjoyment from needlepoint, knowing I can finish a gift and knowing that I can learn even more skills." - Kelley

  • "Determined to learn to finish pieces myself, I immediately came home and signed up for the classes.  What a blessing!!  The instructions are easy to follow, easy to find and easy to refer to over and over.  I have now completed my first piece complete with the finishing techniques from the class!" - Leslie

  • "Your classes have given me the skills and confidence to beautifully finish my needlepoint projects! The finishing classes review every single skill needed to make a professionally finished heirloom ornament. Abigail’s videos show lots of detailed images. And her written instructions are clear and helpful." - Marisa
