Learn To Stitch: Nautical with Hook, Line & Tinker

29 February @ 10:30 am - 12:30 pm


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

Take your pick from one of two nautical themed designs (“Release the Kraken” or “Industrious Octopus”) and stitch along while learning 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.)

When: Saturday, February 29th, 10:30am-12:30pm
Where: 53 Portland St. Downtown Dartmouth, NS
Skill Level: No experience necessary.
Cost: $55 + HST
Full kit, and a few extra materials included!

PLEASE specify whether you would like the kraken or octopus when placing your order.
