This session is held as part of the Handweavers Guild of America Spinning and Weaving Week. Do you want to be able to teach online classes or private lessons via Zoom, but the technology seems too intimidating? Don't know how to set it up or get started? Can't figure out how to make that second camera thing work? Learn strategies for setting up and using tools and equipment you already have (like your phone camera), tips for dealing with technology glitches, and essential tools that you can get on a budget.
This class is held as part of the Handweavers Guild of America Spinning and Weaving Week. Add hand embroidery to your handwovens! These stitches look complex, but are all built upon a simple chain stitch, like variations on a theme. Each one is perfect to use as borders, lettering, or to decorate a hem. We'll make samples to learn each of four stitches step-by-step. Bring some basic materials and stitch along in class, and you can rewatch the video later if you need a review!
