When you enter your Academy class, you will find a Teacher's welcome, and Hardanger Basics for cutting, as a downloadable PDF for you to refer to. Then, at the start of each video lesson, Thea will first show you the BCS Level Five pattern that she is stitching. You will be able to download it, and then use your own materials to follow along with that lesson's specialty stitch! Being able to follow along with your own floss and materials will make this class totally immersive and so exciting!
Our Classroom Assistant, Donna G., has already done the Cross Stitches and other previously learned stitches of each pattern at the start of each video lesson. Thea recommends that you prepare for each lesson by working the Cross Stitches in each Student Kit before you view the matching video Lesson. That way you can enjoy stitching along with Thea as she shows you how to count out and stitch each Specialty Stitch.
If you don't have any materials, or would like to get a few of our Beyond Cross Stitch full Student Kits. There are 10 individual BCS Level Five kits on our website. The Value pack contains all 10 BCS Level 5 kits for a lower price. Each kit contains enough materials and instructions to finish as lovely ornaments! You can buy them all and make a quilt.. or several pillows, or box tops or greeting cards! There are endless ways to use these sweet designs.. each one pretty enough to give to your friends or family!
