Nothing says springtime quite like flowers, so why not stitch up a few of your own in this special virtual workshop hosted by My Modern Met.
Our very own embroidery artist Sara Barnes has dreamed up a beautiful flower embroidery pattern and, over the course of our workshop, will take you step by step through the process of creating this seasonal wall hanging.
Whether you are an embroidery enthusiast or just picking up a needle for the first time, there's plenty to learn from this seminar.
Over the course of an hour to an hour and a half, Sara will share her tips and tricks for how to transfer a pattern and stitch a design.
All participants in this virtual embroidery class will receive the pattern in advance, as well as a list of materials so that you can stitch along with Sara. There will also be plenty of time to interact, ask questions, and share your own work with others in the workshop, as well as a dedicated question-and-answer session at the end.
