Spring is just around the corner! I love this time of year because all the greenery and pops of color start to appear. And while the Seattle area is already pretty green, spring adds a whole new dimension. From the Seattle cherry blossoms to the Mount Vernon tulips, the landscape is about to be awash with color. So while we wait for spring to arrive, check out these spring inspired patterns, kits, and workshops.
Inspired by trips to visit my Father-In-Law during the spring, this Mountain and Tulips embroidery kit is the perfect way to welcome spring. If you're familiar with the Washington tulip fields, then you'll know all about the rainbows of color that start popping up this time of year. If not, be sure to visit the Mount Vernon area or at least Google photos, because the flower fields are gorgeous!
Another spring favorite is the Flower Trio embroidery kit. When my husband and I first moved into our new house, many of our family's first question wasn't about furniture or decorating, but about what we'd plant in our new garden. If you know me, then you know I LOVE plants- houseplants that it. If the plant is in a pot, I'm great. If it's in our yard, that's a whole other ballgame. So instead of planting real plants in our backyard, I designed this lovely flower trio after our neighbor's garden.
Another Pacific Northwest inspired fan favorite is the PNW Pendant workshop. If you've ever wanted to give embroidery a try, stitch yourself a piece of wearable art, or want to take a piece of the Seattle landscape with you, then this virtual workshop is for you! On April 20th, Monster and I will be hosting an online workshop from 6-8pm (PST) where we'll stitch these one-of-a-kind pendants. All materials + two hours of online instruction are included in this workshop.
Are you looking to advance you're skills this spring? Have you tried 3D embroidery? This Blooming Wildflowers design is available as both an embroidery kit and virtual workshop. Kits are great for stitchers looking to try something new. The online workshop is available on March 16th from 6-8:30pm and includes all the materials you'll need to get started on these wildflowers. Registration closes March 10!
Want more wildflowers? The Peel Stick and Stitch Wildflower patterns are the perfect way to add embroidery to anything. If you're looking for a design to add to a jean jacket, t-shirt, or bag, then these designs are for you! Love these designs but aren't sure where to start? Then join Monster and I for a virtual workshop on April 17th from 11am-1pm (PST). We'll use these patterns to create our own wildflowers designs and cover embroidery basics to get you stitching this spring.
