Bring some sunshine to your wardrobe this summer by learning to embroider on to a garment of your choice. A plain t-shirt or vest top can be transformed into something eye catching and unique just by adding some beautiful hand embroidery. Textured roses, stem stitched leaves and delicate french knots will bloom within a design of your choice, either on the pocket of an item, the neckline, or even a cuff. This workshop with Lisa Dolson will be a relaxing and creative class learning a variety of embroidery techniques. This fun and therapeutic session will have you hooked on creating roses, leaves and little sprays of buds.  Lisa can show you how to incorporate these stitches into a lovely piece of your choice by planning out the design and assisting with those lovely finishing touches such as a little beading. 

Why not join Lisa on this workshop, you will be hooked on embroidery in no time!

With the embroidered apparel class you can stitch more than one item, if the attendee wants to bring more than one item that is fine.
