What is a Sew Far Sew Good workshop?
This is an introductory workshop on making handmade embroidered pieces through a mixture of learning traditional techniques and tricks from an ‘accidental professional’.
This is an introductory workshop to embroidery. We will gear your design and ideas to your skill level. Whether you need to learn to thread a needle or are a professional, we will figure it out together. There is no wrong way.
What will be provided?
Each person will receive an embroidery kit and I will provide threads, fabric, pens and pencils and other goodies I think you may need. If any of you are like me and have your own favourite pencil or pens, bring them along!
What do you need to bring
Any reference material that you want to bring will be great. Books, designs, ideas and photos. These can be on your phone. You can also bring anything that you may want to sew, practice or adorn. Part of the workshop is showing you hacks on how to get your ideas together, and onto fabric.
I will provide snacks and we will take a lunch break. There are plenty of restaurants in the area or feel free to bring your own lunch. Embroidery can be time consuming (in the best way) so its worth eating before. Carbo-load!
What will you take home:
A SFSG embroidery kit, allowing you to continue with your pieces at home, and keep on stitching till your hearts content.
An Anchor embroidery book so that you can keep learning traditional stitches long after the workshop is complete.
An print exclusively available at the SFSG workshops.
