Embroidery and Applique

Adding a touch of embroidery and applied fabric can turn nearly any plain thing into an art piece or heirloom. You can stitch on clothes, home goods, accessories and other textiles you’ve made yourself, or bought pre-made. By embellishing on these items, you can make gifts more personal, commemorate events, hide mending or stains, or just give a tired old item a new life.
 We will learn at least 12 different classic embroidery stitches, 2 kinds of applique, and experiment on a free-form sampler. Once you know how, you’ll want to add a touch of stitched decoration to everything you own, make or give.

 Please bring: a fat quarter or approximately 18" square of woven cotton or linen cloth (gingham works great) for your sampler, embroidery floss and needles, and some small scissors

This class will be held at the BALMVILLE GRANGE, at 27 Fostertown Road in Balmville, just across the river from Beacon! Major thanks to the Grange for making this big, open space available to us so that we can have plenty of room to social distance. Each student will have a full table to themselves, and there is a lovely field for us to picnic in as well as a covered outdoor space for lunch should there be rain. Masks will be required in the main classroom at all times. A limited amount of tools and machines will be available for single-person use; please let us know if you anticipate needing to borrow anything.
