Stitch it Weird- Intro to Embroidery

You can make anything more unique and strange with Embroidery!

About this experience

Join Kristie Robillard (@thebabytitanembroidery) for this two-session class learning all the most essential embroidery stitches and how you can create unique art pieces or turn any garment into something special!


Kristie creates her own patterns and uses a mix of traditional simple stitches and thick, paint like stitches, as well as beads and more to make weird, wonderful and sometimes edgy embroidery pieces.


She's created this pattern for this class in particular so you have an opportunity to learn: 


Back stitch

Satin stitch

Split stitch

Wagon wheel roses

Fishbone stitch

Daisy stitch

And French knots

 

We've split this class into two sessions so that you can learn some stitches, go home for a week and work away at it, and then return ready to learn more! You will be encouraged to play with colour choices, and improvise to make this piece your own. 

 

She will also talk about how to create your own designs for future projects!

 

Materials are included, and additionally, you will bring home a high quality hoop, a thread sampler, needles and your fabric so that you can continue this journey at home with a good starter kit to keep.

Hey there! I'm a military brat who's lived all over, but I've found my creative haven in the stunning landscapes of the Comox Valley. Art has been my rock for as long as I can remember, and I've dabbled in everything from paper and pencils to acrylic paint and especially embroidery – it's become a bit of an obsession! I love creating bold illustrations and diving into detailed thread-painting embroideries that let me express all sorts of thoughts and ideas. It's not just about making art; it's about finding happiness and connection through creativity. If you're curious, you can check out my work on Instagram @thebabytitanembroidery. And keep an eye out for future classes at the Spool Sewing Studio – I'd love to share the joy of art and embroidery with you!
