Make Cool Embroidery Wall Art at Blick (6th Avenue)

  • Blick 650 6th Avenue New York, NY, 10011 United States (map)

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.

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.

BYOB! Crafting is made better with a good drink in hand.

CraftJams are hosted in an intimate setting with a twelve attendee maximum. Make sure to purchase your ticket before the event is sold out!
