Class fee | $35-$40 | Register online

Have you always wanted to learn hand embroidery? Now is your chance! Join Heather Higgins of H Squared Designs to learn 9 different stitches as you complete a cute sampler hoop. No previous sewing experience is necessary! In this virtual workshop we will cover how to start and finish a line of stitching, how to load fabric in your hoop, and all the ins and outs of nine different stitches. All the materials will be provided: hoop, pre-printed fabric, embroidery floss, needle, needle threader, and scissors.

The virtual meeting link will be sent out the day before the class. Participants will receive a 10% discount for all in-store or online purchases from Fort Orange General Store for the day of the class.

Registration for shipped materials is required 10 days in advance of the workshop in order to allow time for the materials to be delivered; please register by April 14.

Registration for pickup materials is available until April 23; material bundles will be available for pickup April 15-April 23.
