Teacher: Amber Coppings

Class Day/Time:  Saturday 2:00 to 5:00 pm

Class Description:

Find your creative flow while creating a contemporary embroidery sampler. Learn how practicing and combining simple stitches can elicit intriguing texture and marks. We will practice our stitching on plain fabric, then stitch our final designs onto hand-dyed and/or a vintage handkerchief which will add depth and design to your final piece. Our goal is to create a sampler with color, texture and a contemporary feel, not create the perfect stitches. For those who like to learn “within the lines” a stitching template will be provided which you will learn how to transfer onto your fabric. Please come to class knowing how to thread a needle and how to knot a thread at one end (does not have to be a pretty knot!)

Registration necessary, class size limited to 14

Supplies needed:  Scissors. If you normally use a thimble,or a needle threader, please bring these items to class. Embroidery floss will be provided, but feel free to bring your favorite colors.  Thank you to Kreinik Mfg. for providing the embroidery floss for this class.
