spooky embroidery

You asked – and we delivered – a spooky embroidery perfect for fall. Join us in the craft studio on week one to embroider the spider in her web, as we learn couching, back stitch and satin stitch. Then if you want to add some unexpected florals, join us on night two (Oct 18th) for fern stitch, woven roses and French knots, and night three (Oct 25th) to add chain stitch, bullion knots and blended short and long stitch to your embroidery repertoire. While each night you’ll learn new techniques to complete a single stitched work, they will be practiced on stand alone samples, so you can just come for one or two nights.

Ticket sales are final. No refunds will be issued unless we reschedule or cancel events.

Floral Embroidery

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

Kick your embroidery skills up a notch and learn how to add texture and depth to your needlework while you make your way through a lovely, floral stitch sampler. Together we will learn how to create several embroidery stitches including fishbone stitch, stem stitch, woven wheel and french knots

Previous experience with basic embroidery or other hand sewing is highly encouraged, but not required– if you’re up for a challenge! Deb, our instructor has plenty of experience teaching beginners.

During the workshop we will focus on learning the stitches to complete a small sampler hoop, that you can work on after the class is over, but floral embroidery can also be a beautiful way to customize your wardrobe, and adds panache to your visible mending skills.

Space is limited, so sign up today!

 

Memory Hoop

Stuck on the perfect gift for Mother’s Day or another upcoming family or friends event? How about a custom embroidery hoop featuring a picture of you and your Mom, or your besties, or their pet, or their new home, or well just about anything really! Join Deb in the craft studio to learn some simple embroidery stitches you can use to embellish a photograph printed on fabric. We will help you transfer your photo to fabric, and supply everything you need, different styles and weights of embroidery floss, sequins, beads and charms, along with the hoop and of course a needle or two. Even complete beginners with no hand sewing experience can learn a few simple stitches to make a beautiful and memorable gift.
