Description

We’ll meet to hand sew together on a series of Tuesdays:
May 28 ~ June 4, 11

(skipping June 18)

June 25 ~ July 2, 9, 16
Gathering from 1:30 - 3:00 pm and also 6:30 – 8:00 pm

Attend the afternoon sessions or the evening ones, or mix and match. There are a total of 16 sessions to choose from. Come once or every time – whatever suits you and your schedule.

Each session is stand alone and will have no formal instruction or lesson plan associated with it, although friendly guidance and help getting started is definitely available!

Together, we'll explore the creative freedom and mental relaxation that comes from practicing hand embroidery without a preset pattern or design. We’ll set up hand embroidery projects for ourselves and free our minds to relax and wander while our hands create meandering designs. No sketching is involved, no hand sewing experience is required, and best of all, there’s no way to do it wrong!

For those who are interested, a round robin component will be available. Projects may be left onsite, or passed around the table, so that several hands and minds respond to the previous stitching and add their own vision and marks. (If you have a hand sewing project in progress and would just like some company, you’re welcome to work on that instead.)

Bring a piece of clothing or fabric to sew on, an embroidery hoop, a sewing needle, embroidery floss (in several colors, if you like), snips or scissors, and whatever spectacles you might need in order to thread the needle. If you’re missing one or more item on that supply list, I have extras (including spare reading glasses), so if you’d like to participate, come anyway and we’ll figure it out.

My studio is located in the AIKIDO / Montessori / Lindner Annex at the corner of Montgomery Road and Kennedy Avenue in the Kennedy Heights neighborhood of Cincinnati Ohio USA. The address is 6620 Montgomery Road and the building looks like a large converted grocery store. Come to the side of the building with the colorful lemon head mural (facing Kennedy Avenue). The studio entrance is an unmarked gray metal door between the tree and the Ohio Valley Woodturners Guild loading dock.

Ages 16+. No hand sewing experience required. Building is wheelchair accessible, with no steps or ramps. Studio is pet free.
