Hello craft and fiber lovers! Come learn to embroider at Glitter Box and play with color, handiwork, and texture.

Make patches, embellish old clothes, create personalized gifts, or just enjoy slowly drawing with your hands, a needle, and embroidery floss. The first hour will consist of a lesson in the basic tools and stitches of embroidery. The rest of the time we’ll all work on our projects and look at what other embroidery artists are doing with this surprisingly vast medium. Please feel free to bring any clothes that need a lil ~razzle dazzle~ or some hole patchin' ;) If you are happy with what you’re already working on just come at any point, have a drink and work on your project with us. Even though our focus will be on embroidery, knitters and crocheters are welcome to join! The class is $15 and includes all materials for you to take home- feel free to bring any clothes or cloth that you want to work on as well! 5% donated to this month's non-profit the Innocence Project New Orleans !
