Description

In this Intro to Cross Stitch workshop, learn the basics of one of the simplest forms of embroidery, counted cross stitching with some fun designs for the spring and summer seasons at Markets by Dream Day - a new handmade space in Brooklin with over 50 local artisans and vendors showcasing and selling their work!

Throughout our 90-minute workshop, you will learn how to prep your hoop and needle, how to start your first stitch, how to wrap up your thread, how to finish your hoop for display, how you can customize a design, while working through your choice of any of cross stitch patterns provided by YH Cross Stitch Designs. You will leave this workshop learning a new skill and taking home your own work-in-progress to display or gift.

All materials and light refreshments are provided.

This is a hands-on workshop where participants will receive :
  • a cross stitch 101 guide
  • instructions for their preferred pattern
  • a wooden embroidery hoop
  • a piece of fabric
  • a tapestry needle
  • DMC embroidery thread to complete the pattern (with excess thread if you want to add in any customization)
Beginners are welcomed. Experience is not required, so come stitch back and relax. Suitable for ages 14 and up.

Directions to Markets by Dream Day: 66 Baldwin Street, Unit 304. Take the elevator at the back to the third floor.

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