Family Embroidery Workshop

Materials will be provided and no experience necessary. Parents, join in the fun too and make your own fabric samplers!

Bring your own project or start a new one at this stitching circle open to all. Come for community or to learn a new skill. Hot chocolate, materials, and good vibes will be provided and no previous experience necessary.
