One day, three fantastic opportunities to learn from seasoned embroidery artists.
WITH JENNIFER RIGGS OF THREAD HONEY
Jennifer will teach you how to transform a regular clothing item into something extra special through embroidery. Each student should bring with them a clothing item that they would like to embroider on. It's suggested that you bring an item that doesn't have a lot of stretch as the stitches may get pulled once the hoop is released. A few great fabric options are denim, linen and cotton! Choose a clothing item where you will have a 5 in x 5 inch working space to stitch your design and is in a position where you can position a 6" embroidery hoop around your design.
Lettering & Embroidery
WITH KASSIE SCRIBNER OF LADY SCRIB
Learn different types of lettering and how to best use it in your embroidery. In this workshop, Kassie will go over different letter forms from script to serif and how to make a hand lettered hoop. You’ll get tips and tricks for lettering with an iPad or even using pen and paper, and Kassie will teach her favorite stitches used for lettering. After this, you’ll get to practice the stitches on an exclusive pattern only for the retreat.
Embroidered Patches & Shading
WITH SARAH BETH TIMMONS
In this workshop, you will learn Sarah’s unique shading technique while stitching a patch perfect to add to your favorite jacket or bag! Sarah will be providing one of her fun illustrations for attendees to stitch, as well as hands on instruction to help walk you through the process.
