Make Thankful Stitches at Etsy Labs
Etsy Labs (55 Washington St., Suite 712, Brooklyn)
4 sessions: 4:15, 5:15, 6:15 & 7:15pm

Make your very own hand-stitched sampler expressing gratitude and thanks just in time for Thanksgiving and the holiday season. Each participant will decide on one word or a short statement that expresses gratitude in one way or another. With your own hand you will build this statement out of stitches into a wonderful piece of art. Two basic stitches, the satin stitch and split stitch, will be demonstrated. This is a great project to capture the rewarding meditative quality of embroidery and to make a unique object for your home or as a gift to give away.

I love working on found and vintage linens and encourage participants to please bring a found or inherited handkerchief, tea towel, or small linen doily to work on.
