Hand Sewing Workshop

Have you ever wanted to explore hand stitching and felt nervous picking up that needle? Did you ever wonder if you could explore stitching in a non-traditional way? This is an introductory workshop on hand sewing in which we will just learn one or two stitches and explore the endless possibilities they can offer.  Working with needles and threads can seem hard or out of reach but together we can make it easy and within reach.

Join me for this workshop to explore non-traditional ways of exploring stitching to create something interesting or simply engage with your hands and connect with our beautiful and rich community.

Supplies you will need:

1.fabric scissors

2. Fabric cut into a rectangle or square at least 8 X 8in. The fabric can be a thicker type like canvas or eco felt for ease of use.

3.Embroidery thread, crochet threat, ribbons

4. Crewel needle or embroidery needle with a large eye

5.Needle threader(optional)

6.Pencil or fabric marker

7.Embroidery hoop

If you want to use a sewing needle which is already available at home, you can use a needle threader to thread a finer needle if you are also visually impaired like me and, don;t want to purchase a new needle.

Fabric-you can buy half a yard or quilting fabric already cut
