learn to embroider

Learn To Embroider!
Fun and cheap just in time for the holidays!!!!!!!
In the hood of South Brooklyn.

Another opportunity to take an...
What: Intro to Embroidery workshop
Who: with me, Joetta Maue
Where: MY STUDIO, located at 183 Lorraine
(very close to the Smith and 9th stop in Redhook)
When: Sunday, December 13, 1:30-3:30pm

In this introduction to embroidery workshop students will begin their very own original custom sampler. Each student will design their own sampler with a water-soluble marker, using their own unique handwriting or provided stencils. The 2 hour workshop is an excellent introduction to skills you can take home and be creative with.
We will learn the most basic skills of preparing the fabric, using the hoop, and threading the needle to finishing the project for final display. 5 traditional embroidery stitches will be taught: the split stitch, stem stitch, backstitch, satin stitch, and the ever-mysterious French knot. With the skills learned each student would be able to continue making beautiful pieces of art or simply embellish items of your own or gifts for the holidays. So bring your creativity and lets get stitching!
$20- bring your own supplies or purchase before class. $30 supplies included. Additional supplies will also be available.

Email or call 617-308-5413 to sign up and for details.
VERY limited space so sign up early.

Happiness is not a destination but a method of life.
