Discover traditional embroidery techniques at your own pace in this two-day class that starts with basic stitches and continues into the more complex. Practice “drawing” with embroidery thread, and learn to create texture and movement via cutting or fraying. Take home a starter kit with embroidery hoop, thread, needle, and fabric to practice at your leisure.

Two Sundays; September 29 & October 6
