Embroidery 101: DIY Design + Basic Stitches

  • Urban Bazaar 1371 9th Ave San Francisco, CA, 94122 United States (map)

Stitch together a new take on an old art form at our upcoming embroidery workshop focusing on the basics of design and stitching. Traditionally considered a hobby reserved for grannies, embroidery is a great way to turn an old somethin'-somethin' from drab to fab.

Learn the fundamental stitches to turn your own DIY design dreams into a beloved piece of art. Over the course of two-and-a-half hours, 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

All materials for this class are included in your Embroidery Starter Kit!

COST: $30 + $5 materials fee
