Online Workshop 8/15: Beginning Embroidery - Learn to Draw with Thread

Start Your DIY Embroidery Adventure!

Have you ever wanted to create fiber art or to customize your clothing and linens? In Beginning Embroidery, you will learn classic and experimental hand sewing techniques to create drawings in thread. We will learn how to successfully sew several different embroidery stitches that will create unique surfaces, lines, and texture.

The class will begin with introductions and check-in about everyone's skill level. We will start at the very beginning with how to select appropriate fabric for embroidery, how to thread a needle, how to split threads, and how to stretch your fabric on a hoop.

We will learn 6 embroidery stitches including:

  • running stitch
  • backstitch
  • whipped backstitch
  • blanket stitch
  • satin stitch
  • french knot.

Choose from two booking options:

1. Supply your own materials! For this class, you will need a few different colors of embroidery floss, an embroidery needle, a piece of fabric, and a hoop.

2. Purchase an embroidery kit from us that includes**:

  • 5 skeins of embroidery floss
  • 2 needles
  • 1 piece of cotton fabric
  • 1 5" hoop

This online workshop takes place on Saturday 8/15 from 11 AM -1 PM PST via Zoom Meeting. You will receive login directions prior to the workshop.
