Alanna Stapleton

Do you have an idea for an embroidery piece but aren’t very confident in your color selection or design skills? Have you done some hand-embroidery from patterns but want to start stitching your own drawings, design, and ideas? This Illustrated Embroidery workshop is for you!  Develop an embroidered illustration design with your own ideas or by mixing, matching, and altering a variety of provided designs. We will discuss color theory and learn how to consider materials, stitches, and color in the embroidery design process. There will be a quick how-to review of embroidery stitches if needed, but this workshop is best for someone that has previously done some hand-embroidery. Materials fee is $10, payable to the instructor at the time of class.

This is an in-person class, which requires proof of COVID-19 vaccination. Click here to submit your proof of vaccination. Proof of vaccination must be received 3 days (72 hours) before class, or your registration is subject to cancellation with a full refund of your payment.
