Have you always wanted to learn embroidery but didn't quite know where to start?
This class is for you!
In this class you will learn the 10 basic embroidery stitches and be able to start customizing your own garments! ✨
- Saturday, May 28 2:00 - 5:00 PM: First we'll cover 10 basic embroidery stitches, then move on to transfer techniques to put your pattern on a garment of your choosing. Any remaining time will be spent embroidering your chosen garment while having me available to ask questions and assist you. We'll have vegan-friendly snacks and tea available!
Classes will take place at Wax & Wayne - 464 Amherst St. Buffalo, NY
What's included: All materials such as embroidery floss, thread, needles, embroidery hoops, scissors, fabric scraps, stabilizer, iron, marking pens, original Zabette embroidery patterns...and more!
What to bring: A piece of clothing you'd like to embroider. I recommend bringing a garment made of a woven fabric rather than a knit.
