Stitch Club : Techniques 1

In this hands-on club, you will engage with other craft community members while exploring and learning new embroidery techniques! This course runs for six bi-weekly sessions.

In each session, students will be introduced to a new technique or style of stitching through a planned project. However, students are invited to explore outside the boundaries of each project if they prefer! The instructor will send out a list of supplies required for the first session.

For each class, students will start each session with a show and tell on the project/technique learned in the previous session. This allows space for constructive and supportive critique and feedback! After that, you’ll jump right into the project!

This workshop is a great place to expand your hand embroidery skills, ask for advice, and meet other members of the stitching community.

Students may take these projects and create a Stitch Book after the course is complete. Those who are interested can sign up here:
