Embroidery 101 — Online via Discord

Attention! Morina O’Donovan, from the Shire of the Shadowlands, will be hosting Embroidery 101 online via Discord, on Thursday March 26 at 7pm CST! Check out the announcement below.

If you want to join, hop over to the #fiber channel in the Shadowlands Discord server.

I will be hosting an Embroidery 101 class on Thursday at 7 [CST] (in other words, in lieu of fiber guild). I will be trying out Discord’s video call feature for this class, so please let me know in advance if you want to attend so I can rope you in. If for some reason it doesn’t work, we’ll move over to Zoom and just work around the time limit.

For this class, you will need the following:
– a piece of cotton or linen fabric (a scrap from another project will do, or you can get a fat quarter at WalMart or any of the fabric stores in town)
– a skein of embroidery floss (any color you like, again available at WalMart and fabric stores)
– an embroidery needle (or two if you tend to lose them like I do, lol)
– some form of scissors for cutting thread

An embroidery hoop or frame is optional. You can work in the hand if you want, but for some, having the frame to stretch fabric on helps immensely. You can wood or bamboo hoops for cheap since you are just starting out. You may wish to upgrade later if you stick with it, but for now, there’s no real need for anything fancy.

Keep in mind that Joann’s is doing curbside right now and offering 25% off for those who order online and use the curbside service.

This class will cover how to start a project and will cover three basic stitches, stem, chain, and split. If there is time, we may start talking fill stitches.

If you have any other questions about this class or its material requirements, please do not hesitate to post [in the #fiber channel in the Shadowlands Discord server.]. Looking forward to working with you guys!
