'Crewel 101' Workshop in Santa Monica this Saturday

Our own 'Wool & Hoop' (whose kits and book we stock) will be at The Urban Craft Center in Santa Monica, this Saturday, March 17th to teach a two hour crewel embroidery workshop. They'll be bringing their crewelwork samples including a sneak preview of the new projects from the upcoming book, New Crewel, which comes out in late May. After a brief introduction to the basics and history of crewel embroidery, they'll demonstrate eight different crewel stitches and finishing techniques. Participants will receive all the supplies needed to get started -- linen fabric, wool thread, needles and a hoop. My Wool & Hoop kits and first book, The New Crewel, which offers 30 original designs, 15 fun projects, and 16 classic embroidery stitches, will also be available for sale. The class is $65 and runs from 11am -1pm. All skill levels welcome. Here's a link for more info:
