Introduction to Hand Embroidery Workshop
made possible by
Hey Paul Studios and Handmade in Kansas City

November 7, 2015 ● 1pm – 4pm
1400 St. Louis Ave. ● Kansas City, MO



New to embroidery? Have no idea what it is? This is the perfect place to learn! Join Kristen Shuler of Hey Paul Studios and members of Handmade in Kansas City for an Introduction to Hand Embroidery Workshop, put on in conjunction with EatDrinkStitch.com.


This workshop is perfect for beginners, for those who want to sharpen their stitching skills, or for those who just want an excuse to hang out with like-minded, fantastically creative people.


During this 2 ½ hour course, you will learn all about:
*  Basic tools of hand embroidery,
*  Four basic stitches,
*  Pattern making techniques, and
*  Methods for mounting your work for display.
Best of all, you will leave with a completed work of art!


Hand drawn patterns and fabric will be provided to all students. Plus, complimentary thread will be available to use during the workshop. Feel free to bring your own supplies (like a 5" embroidery hoop and embroidery needles), OR you can purchase an embroidery starter kit for an additional $12 at the class.


What would an event be without refreshments and shopping? Cider and delicious snacks will be available for munching during this workshop, AND you can shop the amazing handmade products of several Handmade in Kansas City members . . . all at the same time! PLUS a sweet swag bag stuffed with Handmade in Kansas City handmade goodies and discounts!

Here’s the small print:
*  Please note that refunds can only be processed up to 8 days prior to the class.
*  Items from stitch kits cannot be sold separately.
*  Parking is limited to street parking. As it will be a First Friday weekend, coming early is recommended.
