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.

slow stitch Saturday

Bring your own project to finish, or make a cardinal appliqué to add to a tablecloth, napkins or even a piece of clothing. We will have supplies on hand, and the kettle will be on! Come and meet some other textile artists and slow down the holiday rush in some great company.

This is the first of many upcoming community groups. Deb will be on hand to help you complete the cardinal project, but otherwise its just a chance to stitch and make some progress on that UFO (unfinished object) before the holidays arrive.

Boro embroidery for visible mending at the Crary Art Gallery

If you are interested in making your clothes last longer, and are intrigued by the current trends for visible mending, then the ancient Japanese tradition of Boro is a great place to begin. While historically, Boro grew out of necessity, preserving textiles and making them thicker and warmer, today it is part of a growing movement to keep textiles out of landfills and extend the life of our wardrobes. During the workshop we will look at contemporary examples of visible mending, and try our hand at sewing on a boro patch. Participants are welcome to bring an item of cotton or denim clothing they would like to mend, but all materials needed to practice will be supplied.
