Embroidery is enjoying quite a comeback right now. It's an easy hand craft to pick up and put down, take with you, and do while you watch TV. With just a few basic stitches you can make colorful works of art for your wall, or sew them into other projects, embellish your clothes, and more. You can even use it to express your political views with clever statements, subversive messages, or blatant exclamations, with a dose of pretty flowers thrown in to make the message polite.

In this workshop, you'll learn several of the most common stitches that will allow you to easily complete several embroidery projects (including back stitch, satin stitch, french knot, and running stitch). We will work on one sampler pattern in class and you will take home a pattern to practice at home.
