Slow stitching journal workshop

with Kirandeep Grewal

Mark your time with a slow stitch journal, as you rediscover simple pleasures of reflecting with needle and thread/s.Through the repeated hand stitch rhythms, you will explore your materials and the techniques with simple stitches.

Participants will learn how to create their own stitch journal. They will be shown how to work with free flowing lines on fabric, to play with stitches (running & fly stitch) on the fabric and joining fabric pieces.

Kiran will provide fabric/s, needle, variety of threads, fabric markers, scissors.  Beginners welcome.
