Recurring Event Embroidery Series

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 a drop in class held every Thursday at noon (Central Time) / 6pm (GST). It is held in partnership with SoulSanity.io as part of their artmaking & wellness program and is open to anyone. Your $24 registration allows you to attend any or all of the sessions from October 13 - December 29, 2022. You can come to all of the sessions or pick and choose which ones you are interested in. Tentative Stitch Schedule: Oct 13 Tulip Stitch & Danish Knot • Oct 20 Braided Chain [read more...]
