Discover the Best Embroidery Classes in NYC

Embroidery is a type of fiber art that involves using needles and thread to create detailed designs on various fabrics such as cotton, wool, linen, or even denim. While it can be done on a machine, basic hand embroidery often consists of using a hoop to hold the fabric taut while you apply various stitching techniques to create designs. Beginner embroiderers may follow a pre-made pattern, while more advanced crafters may create their own patterns to create beautiful designs. Basic materials needed for embroidery include embroidery floss, needles, hoops, scissors, fabric, and patterns that you can draw onto your fabric and show you the stitches required to create the design. 

Why You Should Learn Embroidery in NYC

Learning a fun hobby such as embroidery is a great way to relieve stress and feel a sense of accomplishment. Many find embroidery to be meditative due to the detailed nature of the craft and the ability to create beautiful artwork using just needle and thread. Instead of endlessly swiping through social media, try embroidery in your free time as a more relaxing activity that is likely better for your mental health. Learning embroidery will give you a skill that allows you to create projects you can display in your home or give to others for birthday gifts, baby or wedding showers, Christmas, housewarming, etc. Many embroiderers have even found ways to profit from their projects by selling their patterns and/or embroidery projects on websites like Etsy and Facebook Marketplace. 

In addition to being a great stress reliever, embroidery can give you a sense of community by connecting you to a large community of fiber artists. You may be able to find local embroidery groups through your local library or online on platforms such as Facebook Groups. Some embroidery clubs found online will also provide you access to their pattern library for a membership fee. The Embroiderers' Guild of America (EGA) is a national organization with local chapters that meet regularly in person for embroidery exhibits, classes, and programs. Their membership also includes access to a large library of projects.

Virtual Embroidery Classes & Schools

While in-person embroidery classes are often taken at a workshop, craft store, or art/community center, virtual classes are conducted live online on your computer and therefore can be taken from anywhere. Online embroidery classes offer the ability to learn embroidery from the comfort of your own home or any other place you happen to be in with an Internet connection. Many individuals enjoy online courses for the flexibility they provide and the lack of commute. Additionally, more classes are now being offered online, providing you with more options to choose from instead of being limited to those in your city. The drawback to virtual classes is that you generally have to provide your own materials and tools or equipment. 

Offered through the Evanston Art Center, The Art of Contemporary Embroidery virtual class for ages 16 and older teaches beginners new ways to produce art with needle and thread. Individuals will learn how to embroider with and without a hoop with techniques such as mending, darning, quilt-blocking, couching, and sashiko.
