Two Sundays, September 30 & October 7

For Ages 18+

Discover and explore traditional embroidery techniques at your own pace in this class that starts with basic stitches, such as chain, satin, and straight, and continues into the more complex. Learn how to transfer your own drawings onto fabric and practice “drawing” with embroidery thread. Explore how thread can be used to create texture and movement by cutting or fraying. Take home a starter kit of an embroidery hoop, thread, needle and fabric to practice at your leisure. After learning a few simple techniques and practicing at home, return to make an embroidered patch.
