DCL Online: Embroidered Owl

Zoom/Online Event

Stitch your own embroidered owl from wool felt and sparkling sequins. This is a great class for anyone wanting to learn basic decorative embroidery stitches; in class we will use chain stitch, whip stitch and running stitch. You can choose to finish your owl into a pin or decorative ornament. About the project. Owls are approximately 2×4 inches. Kit will include materials to make one owl from wool felt, embroidery thread, sequins. I will demonstrate finishing your owl as an ornament or pin. Tech details. Class includes a 2 hour live online Zoom class and a materials kit mailed to you before the class session. You will need to provide scissors for this project; all other materials you need are included in the kit. Please register early so the materials have time to arrive before class. A Zoom link will be emailed to you a few days before class. Registration for this class is through Dakota County Libraries.

Hand Embroidery (Fall Session Oct – Dec)

Zoom/Online Event

Spend an hour with a needle and thread exploring the art of embroidery. Each week you’ll learn a new kind of stitch, from braided chain stitch to stacked herringbone squares. NEW: For the fall session we are adding some variations with BEADS and because it's heading toward winter we will combine some stitches to make snowflakes. In each class, we’ll start by making abstract doodles with the basic form and then try out different variations to add texture and color. For inspiration, we’ll look at a few examples of each stitch used in different ways in modern and vintage textiles. Beginners are welcome; you don’t need any sewing experience for this class. This is an online drop in class held every Thursday at noon (Central Time) / 6pm (GST).

Santa Ornament Sew-A-Long

Zoom/Online Event

Join me for a sew-a-long to make your own Santa Claus ornament. These ornaments are designed by Larissa Holland of MmmCrafts.
