2/9/20 Embroidery Workshop with Lea Saccomano
Join us and Lea Saccomano on February 9th as we gather and grow our creativity through the handcraft art of embroidery.
We will be creating our own heirloom 'bouquets' in honor of Valentine's Day. Lea will be guiding us to learn embroidery basics, knots and flowery tricks to be applied to creating a beautiful floral wallhanging, and to serve as a foundation for future projects.
This workshop is great for both the beginner or the novice looking to create something new. We also find that these types of classes are fun to do both solo or with a friend/friends. All materials are provided in an embroidery starter kit that includes a hoop, fabric, a needle and colorful thread.
