Back to Basics • Level 1 Part 1
DVD #9


For several years, Tony Minieri has traveled and taught his Back to Basics The Right Way / Bad Habits Broken Here (Level One) class. Tony's 4-day class material is now presented in DVD format; the Level One series is divided into three parts. Each DVD shows us the Right Way for improving our Needlepoint Techniques. Watching these DVDs will also prepare a student who plans to attend his new upcoming Level Two classes. 

Back to Basics • Level 1 Part 1 is the ninth DVD in the "How'd You Do That?" instructional needlepoint DVD series. This DVD is 53 minutes long and has 36 chapter markers. Watch this DVD like a movie, or search and pause to review these techniques. Tony Minieri is the featured artist, and Amy Bunger is the guest stitcher.
