Wednesday, January 9th 5:30-8 Embroidered Florals @ FAIRGROUNDS

from 50.00

Wednesday, January 9th 5:30-8:00PM

Join us at Fairgrounds, a lovely coffee and tea shop in Wicker Park/Bucktown for an evening of embroidered floral wreaths. There's a rich history of embroidery in the United States and I love looking back to the stories of how women and education and embroidery meet. I created a custom designed, pre-printed piece of fabric so all you need to do is choose your color scheme and fill it in! I’ll show you three common embroidery stitches to complete this piece. Note, you likely will not finish it during our time together, but you’ll have all the skills and materials to keep working at home.

The middle is blank so I’ll have water soluble pens on hand if you’d like to write anything in the middle to stitch up! Initials? New baby name? “Welcome home?”

This is certainly a labor of love and will keep your hands occupied during all of the Netflix binges. Its the perfect craft to take home and work on this Winter.

WHAT YOU GET

  • A needle and colorful thread spread

  • An 8” embroidery hoop and piece of pre-designed fabric

  • Coffee/tea & a baked good

ABOUT THE VENUE:

Fresh venue and coffee and tea choices galore! This sweet café, located near the 6 corners, features local craft coffee makers and delicious food. We’ll be using their awesome family style table to dive into some watercolor while tasting their coffee and croissants.

Location: 1620 N Milwaukee Ave Chicago, IL 60647
