Workshop Overview

Learn embroidery and mixed media sewing techniques to stitch a simple story about your life, family, pets or other interests. First you'll learn the basics by making a wool felt pin cushion, an easy way to practice several stitches (running, stem and blanket) and end up with a place to store those pesky needles and pins. Next you'll work on linen, utilizing photo transfers, commercial printed fabrics and more to create a finished artwork that will you will frame in class on a wooden embroidery hoop.

About the Instructor(s)

Maude May has been been stitching since age 5 and has taught both children and adults. Putting a needle and colorful thread through cloth is an age-old skill that she loves to share and feels that anyone can learn. She believes hand embroidery can be a meditative process where, once simple stitches and techniques are learned, personal fulfillment and joy results.
