Overview

Everyone has a story to tell about themselves, family, pets, passions or a meaningful event in their life. In this workshop you will capture the memory on a 10" x10" piece of layered fabric using Kantha stitching. This technique has been used in India for many years to tell stories to villagers about important health and family issues. There is creative freedom using three simple stitches and discovering the possibilities of using one or six threads to create values and tones. Connect with one another through storytelling while you create a lasting treasure.

By the end of this workshop, students will learn the 3 basic embroidery stitches to draw and stitch their story on fabric, creating different values and tones with thread, and completing a lasting story piece as a personal memory.
