About This Class

I'm thrilled to bring you a class all about hand embroidery on photos, where you will learn 10 basic embroidery stitches that will enhance images of all kinds. It doesn't matter what skill level you're at with fiber art, whether you've never touched embroidery or you do it for a living because this class is going to bring you a new way to stretch your creativity by looking at objects, details and colors in a new way, and I'm going to walk you through all of it step-by-step. 

We'll be covering:

  • Color combinations
  • 10 stitches to enhance photos
  • Several styles of embroidery on photos, such as mark-making, color fill, and adding unusual objects
  • Most importantly: How to embroidery on photographs without damaging or tearing the image

This class is super simple and enjoyable to follow along with, and you might just find that this is once of your new favorite pastimes (so you're welcome in advance ;)
