Did you know that both Henry Fonda and Gustaf V, King of Sweden, both were avid embroiderers??!! Yep, Fonda, in fact, loved how portable and relaxing hand-sewing was that he used to sew on film sets between takes. I have to say, that is why I love it too. Sometimes on long flights, I while away the time just stitching and listening to an audio book.
And any Pinterest or Etsy hipster will tell you that Fiber Arts is where it’s at. From crafting whimsical wall art to embellishing couture or making cloth holiday ornaments, embroidery is a great tool in any artist's or crafter's box. Nowadays you'll even find whimsical embroidery wall art in local boutiques – and more ornate timeless works in world-class museums and galleries.
This course will teach you the very basics in a fun, social, and relaxing atmosphere with textile artist, Rebecca Devaney . Think about all the wonderful ways you can apply embroidery technique, make it social, and even just develop your hand-sewing skills for practical use.
