Embroidery Workshop Recap

Daisy McClellanComment

We love hosting gather maker Jennie Lennick of Jenny Lemons to teach workshops in our space. This past Thursday she taught a sold out class the ins and outs of embroidery.  Our students got to pick from Jenny's original patterns and learned various stitches. Jenny always make a workshop fun. We enjoyed relaxing and sipping on wine - a perfect night! We were so impressed with everyone's work too. Here are a few snaps from the night! Missed out on the fun?

Embroidery Workshop

Daisy McClellanComment

Join us Thursday June 1st as we learn the basics of embroidery and create an adorable sampler. In this class Jennie Lennick will teach us how to successfully sew several different embroidery stitches that will create unique surfaces, lines, and texture. We will learn how to transfer images to fabric by using original patterns created by Jennie- choose from donuts, pizza, plants, leaves, or a combination of all! This isn't your grandma's embroidery class!

All materials will be provided and everyone will take home their project, some extra thread and needles, an embroidery hoop, and a stitch instruction packet for later reference.

Jennie owns Jenny Lemons, a small-batch clothing company based in the Mission. Jennie learned to sew, bake, and embroider as a child growing up in rural Minnesota and draws inspiration from traditional domestic craft. She moved to the Bay Area to attend the San Francisco Art Institute, where she studied painting. Jennie loves constructing garments and teaching workshops all over the city. 

This two hour class also includes wine and snacks and a discount on merchandise in the store that night. No experience needed- all levels welcome!
