Embroidered Lettering Workshop





Make a statement with your denim! In this class, you'll learn how to stitch large-scale embroidered lettering on denim using a special technique that's super FAST and surprisingly easy!

Using a special kantan beading needle, you'll learn to work embroidered chain stitch by hand -- the perfect technique for spelling out words and phrases on denim. Brooklyn-based instructor Nicole Adams will lead this workshop.

This class will cover:

  • Designing and planning your text 
  • How to transfer your text to fabric
  • How to use a kantan needle to create chain stitches by hand 
  • Tips and tricks for success!

Students must bring their own denim garment to embroider; jean jackets are recommended, but denim button-down shirts work well too. Kantan needle tools and embroidery floss will be provided for use during class. 

Students will leave with a finished embroidered word or phrase on their denim piece!
