Come learn the fundamentals of embroidery while creating a special personalized piece for your home or a gift. In this class, you will learn five stitches to get you started on your embroidery journey. The class will review materials, how to get started, and tips & tricks learned over the years. You will practice your new stitching skills on a sampler before beginning on your final piece. You will have time to work on your photo frame pattern with Becca’s assistance.
Everyone will leave the class with a completed project or enough materials and instructions to be able to finish the kit at home. The skills you learn in this class will give you a strong foundation to continue on with your embroidery journey.
Please bring a wallet-sized (2” x 3”) or smaller photo for your piece. If you do not have a photo readily available, there will be some California landscape photos available for students. You are also welcome to make the frame and slot a photo in at a later time. This class is great for both beginners and those with some stitching experience!
