Intro To Embroidery With Hook, Line & Tinker

15 September @ 11:00 am - 1:00 pm

$55

Do you have the itch to stitch? Thinking of trying embroidery but are unsure how to start? Join Hook, Line & Tinker at The Trainyard General Store for an introductory workshop!

Take your pick from one of three woodland themed designs (“I read past my bedtime, “fox in phlox, and “gnomework”) and stitch along while learning four introductory embroidery stitches. You’ll have all the know-how and materials you need to finish your masterpiece at home. We’ll also talk hoops, floss, needles, and ways to display your finished hoop.

Your friends and family will undoubtedly be very impressed by your finished creation. Be prepared for adulation – and possibly a little envy too. (You deserve it.)

Skill Level:  No experience necessary.
Cost:  $55 + HST
Materials Included!
