got craft? :: DIY embroidery workshop

Join DIY author Leanne Prain for a drop-in workshop at Got Craft? on Saturday, December 8th and Sunday, December 9th from 10:00am to noon, and learn how to embroidery on card stock. Using a screen-printed postcard as a foundation, embellish your own unique seasonal postcard with a variety of stitches.  Using a needle and thread as a drawing medium, participants will be asked to enhance the existing printed design with their own creative expression. With this project, there is no right or wrong method or stitch pattern. Anything goes!

Leanne will demonstrate embroidery stitches that can be use for outlines and drawing, as well as decorative stitches. Participants can experiment with the running stitch, stars, scallops, or French knots to their projects.  Create your own one of a kind keepsake, or a seasonal card to send to someone special.

This project is based on Photo Feelism, a photographic stitching project designed by Siobhan Long, published in Leanne Prain’s book Hoopla: The Art of Unexpected Embroidery (Arsenal Pulp Press, 2011)
