About This Class

Ever thought about trying hand embroidery but felt totally overwhelmed? This class is for you!

In this class you’ll learn five basic stitches that you can use to create simple and beautiful embroidery pieces. We'll go through everything from threading the needle to backing the hoop, giving you a comprehensive overview of hand embroidery.   

Once you’ve mastered the basics, you can use your imagination to create your own designs! Eventually you’ll be able to use these skills to embroider on clothes, bags and make your own wall art.

 You’ll need some calico or cotton fabric, embroidery hoops, scissors, embroidery thread, a size 5 needle and either a water-soluble pen or heat-erasable pen.
