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:
