About the event
Have you ever wanted to embroider your clothing? Join fiber artist Melissa Galbraith of MCreativeJ for a hands-on workshop. Simply bring a garment to embroider and I'll help you get started. We'll discuss how to embroider different garments, such as t-shirts, sweatshirts, denim, and more. This class will also cover a handful of different embroidery stitches, recommended ways to transfer your design, and care for embroidered garments. This workshop is beginner-friendly and no prior embroidery experience is required.
Supplies for the garment embroidery class:
- a garment to embroider, like a t-shirt, sweatshirt, or denim
- an embroidery needle
- embroidery thread, DMC or similar is recommended
- wash away stabilizer, like Sulky Fabri-Solvy and pencil to draw out a design. If you'd like a pre-printed design Melissa has Stick and Stitch patterns.
- an embroidery hoop
Not needed during class but also recommended for garment embroidery and will be covered in class:
- iron on stabilizer, like Sulky Tender Touch
