About The Event

What time commitment am I signing up for? When are the classes? 

1.5 hours, one evening. Outside of this you can decide how much time you spend stitching, and you can attend additional classes on a pay-per-class basis.

Based on volunteer availability, one-off classes will be either Monday, Thursday or Friday evening. Evenings will change. 

Where is the class physically located? 

Suite 400A (fourth floor) of 104 West 9th Street, Kansas City, MO 64105. This building has two entrances because it's situated on a corner (9th St and Baltimore Ave): the other address where you will enter from after hours with a four digit pin code is 820 Baltimore Avenue. Both of these doors will lead to the elevator lobby where you can get dinner at Wrap It Up (tex-mex). 

Who can attend?

Adults and teens who want to learn the craft. These evening classes are for mature community and quiet learning. The conversation may drift to schooling discussions or adult topics, in addition to embroidery teaching. No childcare or adjacent play area will be available during these events. Babes in wraps/carriers/arms are welcome, but please keep mobile children at home for these events.

Why a fundraiser class? 

AnySchoolers is a grassroots, baby nonprofit organization that is nationalizing to advocate for nontraditional schooling options/support for families. We are incorporated, doing things by the book, and applying for grants. But grants for new things (or things not recognized by society as historically normed educational causes) such as schooling freely in many different ways… those grants are hard to come by, and they are small dollars. Our volunteers are using classes and events to help raise money for the cause. And out of it, you get an experience and some exposure to something new! Win-win!

Can I donate above and beyond the registration fee? 

Please do! We have an option to do that when you register. And there’s a space to donate anytime on the website!

I already know how to stitch. Can I sign up? 

Absolutely! We can use your know-how and enjoy your company! We still need you to pay the registration fee. 

How will the class go? 

The best way to learn to hand embroidery is by doing it, so all of these classes will be small group classes. Depending on the individuals attending, we will customize the time. We may provide a small group lesson, or we may give 1:1 - 1:3 ratio consultation on specific skills as you work. 

Are supplies provided?

A starter kit is not required to join in, but you would need to purchase your own supplies and bring them along with you. We have an add-on ticket option for you: it's a basic starter kit that includes fabric, hoop, five skeins of embroidery thread/floss (you can choose colors from what is available), needle, threader, thread snippers/scissors, stick-n-stitch paper for patterning, stitches pocket guidebook, basic pencil pouch. These are the things you will need to bring if you want to purchase your own supplies. The starter kit is the bare minimum for what you need and simple, not overwhelming. Starter kits are $20, we collect it for you, and you will have a transfer medium you can draw a design on. You can also bring what supplies you have at home or but a stitching kit online if you'd like to do a specific pattern you find. We will show you the many ways to transfer designs onto fabric.
