The Darien Community Association will soon be offering a great class for those looking to be creative – Beginning Needlepoint.
Needlepoint offers a relaxing yet productive way to express your creative side. Using a multitude of colored threads, an open-weave canvas, pattern and needle, this habit-forming activity is a great way to relieve stress while creating gifts or artwork for your home.
Instructor Sue Ozanne, past instructor at Darien’s House of Needlepoint, helps her students learn the intricacies of the art, while enjoying the therapeutic value.
This Beginning Needlepoint class will be held from 1pm to 2:30pm over three consecutive Wednesdays - January 9, 16 and 23. Fees are $60, or $45 for DCA members. On the first day of class, students should bring a needlepoint project to start, or purchase a practice kit from the instructor for $5. There is a maximum of 8 students per class.
Reservations are required; please contact the DCA at firstname.lastname@example.org, or by phone to 203-655-9050 during office hours of 9am to 3pm Monday through Thursday, or 9am to 12pm Friday. Classes are held at the DCA, 274 Middlesex Road in Darien. To receive notice of upcoming programs via email, contact the DCA.
