Whether you're brand new to stitching or an advanced embroider, Katherine Shaughnessy's New Crewel Embroidery Workshop is sure to be a perfect fit. We'll have a trunk load of Katherine's newest crewelworks with us and plenty of copies of her latest book, New Crewel: The Motif Collection. So come and learn (or get refreshed on) some basic crewel stitches and then let Katherine show you all of her new favorites, especially the super fun, 'spirograph' stitch from the new book. She'll also go over some crewel history, an explanation of materials, finishing techniques and pattern transfer tricks. Participants will receive all the supplies needed to get started -- linen fabric, wool thread, needles and a hoop. Workshop fees vary. Contact locations for details. Wool & Hoop kits, supplies and books -- featuring original designs, dozens of fun projects and over 20 embroidery stitches -- will be available for sale. The workshops are small and are sure to fill up quickly, so sign up today!
