July Embroidery Workshops: Still Online, Still Stitching Fun
Updated: Jul 13, 2020
July is for workshops and boy, do I have a bunch for you to choose from! Teaching online workshops has truly been a highlight for me this year. It's not something I had planned or expected to do when the year began and I was actually really hesitant and nervous to offer them. Now, months into quarantine and missing crafting with fellow makers, I'm so thankful I took that leap. Online workshops have been an amazing way for me to connect and inspire stitchers and stitch with people all over the world.
See what I have in store for you this July:
