Level: Sewing 101 - Beginner Friendly

Duration: 2 hours


In our Embroidery 101 class, we learn 7 different basic embroidery stitches and put them all together on an embroidery sampler! Participants embark on a creative journey as they craft their own sampler, equipped with essential tools provided in the class. Each attendee receives an embroidery hoop, fabric, vibrant embroidery floss, and a needle to get started participants learn and practice essential techniques such as blanket stitch, couching stitch, back stitch, satin stitch, split stitch, running stitch, fly stitch, chain stitch and the charming French knot. This comprehensive exploration not only results in a beautifully crafted sampler but also instills a solid foundation of embroidery skills that participants can carry forward into more advanced projects!
