Bored with a wardrobe filled with plain-Jane gowns? Transform one of those ho-hum garments with a bit of embroidery, and you now have a one-of-a-kind garment that others admire! Or, go all-out and embroider the entire surface of a coif, a pouch, a sleeve, or even a jacket!

Whether this is your first time putting needle to thread or you’re an embroidery veteran, if you’ve been waiting for the know-how or the motivation, “The Academy of St. Clare of Assisi: Keeping You in Stitches!” will enable and inspire you!

WHAT: At this event devoted to the art of the needle, you will:
• Spend time with fellow embroiderers, relishing the relaxed atmosphere with others who share your passion for stitching.
• Learn more about embroidery!

The Academy of St. Clare offers you two ways to learn or share what you know. It offers:
• Small, specialized classes on single topics These classes are usually one hour in length and taught by embroiderers for embroiders. They require no special sign-up before the event.
• Long, detailed “kit” classes on beloved styles. Afternoon “kit” classes require pre-registration and pre-payment; pre-registration starts on January 15, 2019, and ends on March 1, 2019.

WHEN: This All-Embroidery weekend starts Friday, March 29th, and ends Sunday, March 31st, 2019. Site opens at 5 PM on Friday and closes at 11 AM on Sunday.

WHERE: Boy Scout Camp Karoondinha, 225 Thomas Dam Road, Millmont PA 17845-9448 (central PA/Abhainn Ciach Ghlais)
