Hand embroidery is having a revolution to say the least! From high fashion clothing to fine art, it's winding it's traditional road through our modern world with beautiful results. For this class we will focus on simple “hoop art” where the embroidered design is left inside the embroidery hoop and hung as a stand alone piece of art.

In this class students will learn the most utilized stitches from today’s top embroidery designers (including the back stitch, satin stitch, split stitch, and French knot), and how to finish off their hoop so it's ready for hanging.  Lucy will also teach students how to design their embroidery pattern, where to find patterns online for download, and how to
transfer the designs from paper onto fabric.

Lucy has prepared two patterns for students to choose from for this class:  Choose the Love Bird or Pineapple pattern at check out.

Supplies: No need to bring a thing!  Included in the class fee are two 6” embroidery hoops, two pre-printed designs, thread, needles, needle minder, and instruction booklet.  You are welcome to bring your own scissors -- the smaller the better! -- and Lucy will have some embroidery scissors for sale in class. (DF&T has some big basic scissors to share.)

Sustenance:  Light snacks and beverages will be provided and there will be a half hour break for lunch. Bring your own lunch or you can step out onto Warren Street to pick one up!
