Hand Embroidery 101 (Beginner)


This class is a great primer for those wishing to begin their journey into embroidery.  It began as 'Come for Tea & Stitch With Me' and covers a variety of surface stitches with embroidery threads and silk ribbons as well.  Fabric & Aida cloth samples as well embroidery threads & ribbons are all provided.  There are lots of tips, tricks, demos, and handouts in this class.  You'll learn how to hoop properly, thread easily, knot, embellish, and put your stitches together for borders & crazy quilting applications.  Students should bring assorted embroidery/crewel needles and an 8" hoop if possible.  If you don't have access to these, there will be some provided for use in class, or for purchase in store that day.  Creative House also has a large colorful selection of WonderFil 12wt long staple cotton threads for purchase that are perfect for hand embroidery and crazy quilting.  These are Monika's favorite thread weights!
