Embroidery 101

This ain’t your Grandma’s embroidery class!
Ok, well of course she could come too.)

Embroidery is an ages old tradition but you won’t find any of those ladylike stuffy pillow cases here!

Pick up a hoop and needle with us and learn basic embroidery stitches that will give you a good base knowledge to start your embroidery adventure from. We’ll go over everything from start (stretching your fabric) to finish (what do you do with the back and all that fabric?!).

You’ll practice a variety of basic stitches first, including back stitch, running stitch, lazy daisy, chain stitch, woven rose, and more! Then you’ll choose from a selection of stencils and designs to put your newly learned skills to use and make a custom masterpiece to take home. Because practice makes perfect!

Why we love this workshop:
Embroidery is a relaxing past-time that’s a great way to customize and dress up a variety of fabric things you already own from jeans and t-shirts to backpacks and hats. Our favorite is stitching up our converse!

  • Step-by-step instruction

  • All project supplies included

  • Practice fabric to keep and reference

  • Take home 1 custom piece of embroidery artwork
