Sewing with a Twist
4:00 PM - 5:30 PM
This workshop is intended for ages 9-18.

A sampler is traditionally a cloth embroidered with designs, mottoes, the alphabet, and different types of stitches, to showcase skill. This class takes the idea of a traditional grid sampler and reworks it into a mixed art piece. Participants will design and create their own one of a kind mixed media stitched samplers. We will use fabric, beads, basic embroidery stitches, charms, colored pencils or any other materials that might strike our fancy to create a very personal sampler. No two will be exactly the same.  Please note that participants should feel comfortable handling a needle.
