Upcoming Events
  • Oct 24 Learning Hand Embroidery Embroidery is showing up everywhere! Come learn how to hand embroider on clothes, pillowcases, jackets, etc. We will learn the basic stitches and you can complete your own project to show off. My Grandmother taught me how to embroider years ago, and I am so excited to see that is the new trend. If you have something you want to embroider, such as a pair of jeans or jacket, bring it to class with you, or I will also have pillowcases and other items here if you want to go that route. I will have the hoops, needles, and thread needed to complete the projects. I'm so excited. Come join us!! Albany, GA - (26.0 Miles)
