What you'll learn in this embroidery class:

This workshop will focus on Jessie’s signature hand embroidered illustrations incorporating embroidered lettering and appliqué techniques.

This workshop will start with a simple talk and demonstration by Jessie about how to start your own embroidered stories in stitch. Jessie will then go on to direct you as a group and individually, as she helps you to create your own story in her signature style of stitch and appliqué.

You will be working on a natural linen fabric as your base, and to let your story unfold on and in to. You will be shown by Jessie various favorite stitch techniques, including her signature style of couching, running, stem and back stitch and simple needle turned appliqué to create your own stitched stories and imagines directly in and on to your base cloth.

You will be given a kit in person from Jessie for this workshop.  Please bring with you any favorite fabric scraps that you may like to incorporate, these can be small scraps in soft whites or various colors and patterns. Odd small paper scraps ie old postcards, letters, book pages. Favorite embroidery threads that you may like to use and your own sewing tools. Odd charms, buttons and other personal ephemera are also good to bring as they may become stitched in to your story during this workshop.

Coffee/tea, lunch and asperos served.
