Begin your embroidery journey with a summer camp class! While making a couple of simple samples with brightly colored yarn and blunt needles on stiff fabric, you’ll learn 6 basic embroidery stitches that you can use for almost any future embroidery project:

  • straight stitch
  • outline stitch
  • daisy stitch
  • chain stitch
  • satin stitch
  • French knots

Along the way, you’ll learn how to thread your needle and prepare yarn and fabric for a project. After some practice on samples that you can turn into iron-on patches for a bag, jacket, of notebook cover, you’ll embroider a little picture you can display in a frame.

Then when you’re at home, set your inner artist free and create your own new designs with the stitches you’ve learned! Plus, you’ll take with you a couple of pieces of fabric, a couple of needles, and some yarn to stitch your creations!

Instructor Bios:

Fran Fuller has been sewing, knitting, and embroidering since she was in first or second grade. She says, “Once you know a few basics, you can find a lot of fun in fiber crafts, and your skills get better really fast! With every project you make, you have ideas for the next project and the one after that. There’s always a new technique to try or a new design to work out!”
