About This Class


You’ve taken a thousand or more photographs- which one could become an heirloom? Whether you are an embroidery novice or pro you can mine your camera roll for stitching inspiration. You will learn how to print photo imagery onto fabric, explore which stitches best express the textures your camera captured, and complete a photo-inspired piece of original stitchery.

Maybe you want to forever remember a special event or make a one-of-a-kind souvenir of your last amazing vacation. Turning your photo into a work of embroidered art will rescue it from the digital cloud and make it last forever!
