Description

Come, stitch back and relax with us!

In this Introduction to Cross Stitching at Markets by Dream Day in Brooklin, learn the basics of one of the simplest forms of embroidery, counted cross stitching, with some fun holiday greeting card designs for the holiday season.

Throughout our 2-hour workshop, you will be learning about how to prep your hoop and needle, how to start your first stitch, how to wrap up your thread, how to personalize your cards with different types of thread, while working through your choice of any of cross stitch card patterns provided by YH Cross Stitch Designs. You will leave this workshop learning a new skill and taking home a set of holiday greeting cards to gift.

All materials and supplies are provided. This is a hands-on workshop where participants will receive :
  • a set of holiday greeting cards, handmade envelopes, gold seals
  • a tapestry needle
  • DMC embroidery thread to complete the cards
Beginners are welcomed. Experience is not required, so come stitch back and relax at one of my favourite local markets!

For a preview of designs you will be able to select at the start of the workshop, check out YHCrossStitchDesigns.etsy.com.

More designs will be released every month leading up to the workshop. For more updates, follow @YHCrossStitchDesigns on Instagram.

So... why should I try cross stitch & embroidery?
*Anyone can do it. You don’t need to be an experienced stitcher or embroiderer in order to learn.
*Expand your creativity. The different stitching techniques, shapes, fabrics, hoops, patterns, colours you’re exposed to create pre-made or custom patterns helps with nurturing your creativity. There are many ways you can customize pre-made patterns and add in your special touch with your project or when you display it.
*Relieve any stress. It’s a therapeutic hobby that you can pick up anytime and anywhere. Embroidery is meditative.
