Event Series Event Series: Not Your Granny’s Cross-Stitch

Not Your Granny’s Cross-Stitch

February 25, 2021 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm


This workshop will walk you through the process of how to plan and execute a cross-stitch project using snarky sayings and cut imagery. Participants will receive their own embroidery kit with everything needed to make their project. Using embroidery thread, aida, embroidery hoops, and needles to create imagery, you will learn all the skills necessary to continue growing as a fibersartist. Just like grandma used to, but with NSFW sayings! 

*This workshop is two sessions; Feb 18th, 6pm-8pm and Feb 25th, 6pm-8pm*

**This is a kit-based virtual workshop. Participants will pay for the workshop, pick-up their embroidery kit, and receive virtual instruction using Zoom. Kits will include everything needed to successfully complete the workshop! For community members, we will work out a time that works for curbside pickup. **
