About this Event

This class will be taught in-person at 850 Battery Street, San Francisco.

Class length: 6 hours

Skill level: Great for beginners or anyone wishing to brush up on their embroidery skills

Class Description: This class is part of our 6-part Introduction to Embroidery Series. Students can choose between the "Contemporary Insect" beetle design or "Traditional Insect" bee design at check out. The technique is the same for either option and both designs will cover the following stitches:

• laid work

• whipped wheel

• couching

• buttonhole stitch

• buillion knot

• buttonhole bar

• ermine filling

• whipped backstitch

Our Introduction to Embroidery Series will introduce you to foundational embroidery skills such as how to thread the needle, how to start and end your threads, and how to use an embroidery hoop. You will have the opportunity to practice stitching with four different kinds of threads: wool, cotton, metallic, and silk. In addition to the fabric for the finished design, you will be provided with a “doodle cloth” for practicing your embroidery stitches.

This series consists of six different classes. Each one has a different subject matter (i.e. Animal, Flower, Building), a traditional design or a contemporary design. The two designs will be taught at the same time based on students' kit choice. You can take as many of the classes as you like and in any order that you wish. You will learn eight different stitches in each class, or a total of 48 stitches if you take all six!

Kit Contents: needles, linen fabric, threads (cotton, wool, silk, metallic)

Supplies: All materials will be given to you during class.

Class Minimum: 3 students

About the Educator: Laura has been embroidering for 40+ years specializing in Surface Embroidery. She studied Fine Art at California State University East Bay, and embroidery with the Embroiderers Guild of America as well as San Francisco School of Needlework and Design. Her piece called “Balance” toured the United States and Canada as part of the 2 year Sixteenth National Exhibit with the Embroiderers Guild of America.

She has won numerous awards including “Best in Show” at the California State Fair in Sacramento. While Laura's first love is doing embroidery, her very close second is teaching embroidery.
