Hand embroidery has made a huge comeback in the last few years. Stitch basics are made easy in this 2.5 hour class with Portland artist Nichole Alvarado. In our time together we'll cover: 

- choosing hoops, fabric, needles, and floss

- transferring images to fabric

- turn images into patterns

- finishing touches 

and how to troubleshoot any fun little mysteries that may arise!

Together we'll complete a botanical sampler that includes back, satin, split, chain, stem, and fly stitch as well as French knots. 

Take home a Beginning Embroidery Tips booklet perfect for referencing as you begin your own projects at home!

Class size is limited to allow for individual instruction.

Refreshments provided.
