Don't be spooked by stitching and join our Embroidery CraftJam. Learn the basic embroidery stitches and make some awesome wall art. In our beginner-friendly class we’ll give you a rundown on the basics of this classic craft. And to get your creative juices flowing, this event is hosted at Freehand New York, an artistic community and hotel in Flat Iron district.
Taught by a certified JamMaster, in just under two-hours you’ll learn:
- how to prep your embroidery hoop for DIY magic
- how to create and transfer your design onto fabric
- the basics of selecting the perfect thread
- how to start and end your embroidery project
- how to create essential embroidery stitches, such as the running stitch, back stitch and chain stitch.
No tools? No problem! We’ve got everything you need, including a colorful selection of threads and supplies as well as design suggestions.
We encourage you to brainstorm and print out any ideas you have for your embroidery project. We suggest simple line drawings, something that isn’t too complicated to complete in the two hour workshop. The embroidery hoops are 6”, so keep your design to around 4”-5”.
We have a selection of beginner friendly embroidery patterns, so don't fret if you don't have time to print your own! You are of course free to draw your own original designs.
This is not BYOB – The Freehand will have beverages available for purchase.
CraftJams are hosted in an intimate setting with a twelve attendee maximum. Make sure to purchase your ticket before the event is sold out!
Please note: supplies may vary based on availability.
Finding us: Our workshop will be on the mezzanine level of the hotel by Studio, one of their restaurants. Upon your arrival at the Freehand, 23 Lexington Ave, you can take either the stairs to the left or the elevators one level up. We will be set up at a table in the middle of the room, right in front of the elevators- you can't miss us!
