Portraits of Water Embroidery, February 24 (Sunday), 1-4 PM.
Embroidery Workshop at Lakes Makerie in residence at the Resonance Box (5255 Chicago Ave., Minneapolis).
Embroidering by hand is calming, relaxing, and meditative. . . a little like spending time at a favorite lake. Join us while we paint portraits of our city lakes in thread to a soothing sounds of water and ice. It will be a little escape from our busy world--kind of like a visit to the cabin.
No sewing experience necessary, we'll teach you how. $75.00 includes fabric, pattern threads, needle and hoop. Choose your Lake: Bde Maka Ska, Lake of the Isles, Cedar, Harriet, Nokomis (not pictured) or a pattern of circular surface ripples. Choose your fabric: White, Ivory, Fall, or Pale Blue Linen-Cotton. Your finished product will be 15" square and suitable for hanging in hoop, making into a quilt or small pillow, or incorporating into a quilt.
