Slow Stitch Club: learn the art of slow stitching by hand



Purposeful and focused immersion while stitching benefits us in physical, emotional, financial, and spiritual ways.  It gives us a brand new way of looking at our work and how we approach the world in general.  Learning a slow stitching technique gives us more than a finished product, it offers benefits that we often overlook in our consume, rush, finish, unconscious world.

Students will learn the basics of embroidery, hand quilting, English paper piecing, hand piecing, appliqué, kantha, sashiko, and boro to begin creating art with stitches.  

Each month, students will learn a new type of hand stitching and begin a small project. They will then work on the project at home during the month. At every stitch club meeting, we will have a show and tell of the previous months projects! Each of these small projects will then be put together using English paper piecing and hand quilted into a small wall hanging or table topper.

Enjoy 8 sessions, once a month.  The Slow Stitch Club welcomes you into a whole new community of creativity and socializing.
