Hand-Stitched Lettering

Not your grandma’s embroidery lesson (but grandmas more than welcome to join!). This course will cover a narrow subset of embroidery, focusing on techniques used to create whimsical letters and simple graphical illustrations. Learn about the tools, materials, and design process, master the "point de chaînette" stitch, and leave with a personalized accessory.

IMPORTANT NOTE: Please bring a cotton t-shirt, tote bag, handkerchief, or other cotton item you'd like to letter.
