Learn the art of contemporary hand embroidery while creating a workshopic embroidery sampler!  Embroidery can be used to decorate everything from tea towels to clothing, and it’s an easy way to make store-bought items unique. Students will learn some of the most-used embroidery stitches while creating an attractive sampler. You can use your sampler as a reference for future projects or simply hang it on the wall and admire it!

All levels welcome: great for beginners and advanced stitchers alike.
