Craft This: April Hand Embroidery And Indigo Workshops


April Hand Embroidery and Indigo Workshops with MCreativeJ

Are you looking for a creative outlet? A hands-on class to explore fiber arts? Or maybe just a fun few hours of crafting with friends?


Take a craft class with me!


I'm Melissa Galbraith of MCreativeJ and I teach hand embroidery and indigo workshops. I've been sharing my love of hand embroidery for more a decade and teaching workshops for over 4 years. I love helping you learn a new craft and seeing that ah-ha moment when things spark to life in class.


Each workshop is a hands-on experience for you to learn. No matter the class, I start off from the very beginning and guide you through step-by-step. Each workshop covers a variety of hand embroidery stitches and includes one-on-one time with me. You'll be able to ask questions, try needle arts, and craft with fellow maker enthusiasts.


See what hand embroidery workshops are coming up and make a plan to get stitching. Join me for an embroidery workshop this April.
