Smash the patriarchy AND learn to embroider in this beginner workshop! You’ll master embroidery basics as you complete a rad "Future is Female" hoop from designer Melisa Joy. 10% of proceeds from this class will be donated to Planned Parenthood.
This class will cover:
- How to transfer a printed image to fabric
- What types of fabric, embroidery floss, needles and other tools are required
- How to do a basic outline stitch and filler stitch to complete your embroidered image
- How to “frame” your finished piece in an embroidery hoop
You’ll leave with a finished hoop and the know-how to tackle more embroidery projects on your own! All materials needed will be provided and are included in class cost.
