Floral Embroidery

May will bring flowers regardless of the weather here in Western New York, with this floral embroidery workshop!

Following on from our other very popular embroidery workshops, Deb is back, with an introduction to adding flowers and foliage to your embroidery skills. During the workshop we will focus on making a small sampler hoop, but floral embroidery can also be a beautiful way to customize your wardrobe, and adds panache to mending skills.

Didn’t take any of the other workshops, no worries, this class is suitable for complete beginners.

The workshop price includes all materials, along with expert tuition, as well as a fun evening with like-minded creators.

Space is limited, so sign up today!

 

beginning embroidery (evening 2)

You asked – we listened! After our really popular visible mending workshop many of you reached out to ask for a follow-up embroidery class. Join our program director Deb Eck, who has been sewing since she was a small child, for this beginner level class. Never picked up a needle? No problem. This workshop will cover all the basics of thread, needle and fabric selection, how to mark out your fabric and transfer patterns, and of course, introduce a range of starter stitches you can build upon to create a contemporary sampler.

Thanks as always to our wonderful pop-up partner, ARTCloth + Craft, for letting us use their pretty space again while we wait for construction to wrap up.

The workshop includes all materials and supplies and will take place over two evenings – March 23rd and 30th from 6-8pm.

Seating is limited. To sign up head to the listing for the first evening HERE
