Stitch up a new take on an old art form!

Usually an art reserved for grannies, embroidery is a great way to turn an old somethin'-somethin' from DRAB to FAB! Learn the first basic stitches to turn your own DIY design dreams into a beloved piece of art!

In this upcoming workshop, instructor Steph Cortes, will show you some of the secrets her grandmother shared with her when she was a wee one bored on her summer vacations.

You'll get one-on-one instruction on how to transfer your own original design (if you don't have a design in mind, Steph will have a few templates drawn out) and start practicing the following stitches:

  • running stitch
  • back stitch
  • split stitch
  • french knots
  • seed stitch
  • blanket stitch
  • satin stitch
  • stem stitch
  • star stitch

Your materials fee will cover:

  • one 4" wooden embroidery hoop
  • two scraps of fabric (one for practice stitches, one for your DIY design)
  • a European quality embroidery needle
  • a variety of colors of high-quality embroidery floss

COST: $30 +$5 materials fee
