Join Jennifer from Thread Honey to up-cycle an item from your closet!

At this workshop, Jennifer will walk you through the process of embroidering on clothing and leave with a new statement piece. In this class you will learn 2 different stitch techniques that you can use not only for this project but in future embroidery endeavors as well. This class requires you to bring in the piece that you want to embroider on (see notes below) which means every item created at the class will be totally unique!

This workshop is designed for beginners and you'll be walked through the entire embroidery process, even if you've never held a needle before.

At the end of the class you will have a “brand new”, up-cycled item in your wardrobe! After learning how easy it is to make old items new again with embroidery, you can use these skills to help create a more sustainable closet.

Important Note:

You will need to provide your own clothing item that you want to embroider on.
When choosing your item there are two main things you want to look for.
1. is that you want to work with something that does not have a lot of stretch to it. If the fabric of your item has a lot of stretch to it then it becomes harder to stitch and your embroidery might pucker once you remove the hoop.
2. is that you want the area that you stitch on to be larger than the 5” embroidery hoop you'll be working with. So stitching on an area like pants legs will be much more challenging than stitching onto the front of a button-up shirt.

Some great examples for items to stitch on are canvas tote bags, denim jackets or an old linen dress shirt. Still unsure about what to bring? Check out this video.
