quilt squareAs a self-professed “junker,” I have a very hard time passing up unfinished handmade projects when I see them. A few years ago I came across a stack of Quilt Blocks that were never made into a quilt. They were beautifully tattered and worn, and my heart wondered about the hands that crafted them.

Inspiration struck.

I’d love to spend a day together taking you through my process of stenciling, stitching, and adorning these wonderful remnants of past creativity.

I’ve taught this a couple of times in a much smaller timeframe, but think it’d be cool to get you to well on your way in this 1-day workshop!

In the morning we’ll plan your piece and dive in with a boatload of embroidery stitches. You’ll be able to see them well as we have a handy-dandy overhead projector that makes it sooo easy to see. And, I’ll come around for one-on-one instruction since this is great class size.

In the afternoon we’ll talk about attachments and how to pull everything together with 3-D objects and backing fabric. And, keep stitching, stitching, stitching. We’ll take a break for lunch which is included in your workshop registration.

Stitching with Kristin





You’ll get a kit that includes:

  • Your choice of a vintage quilt square (or if you have one that is meaningful to you, please bring it!)
  • Your choice of backing fabric from our stash
  • A hoop
  • My favorite needles
  • Access to our stash of buttons and small objects to include in your work
  • Use of our studio paints and stencils

Please bring: 

  • A basic sewing kit including small scissors, needles, thread, straight pins, etc.
  • A variety of embroidery threads in your favorite colors. DMC is a great choice as well as Perle cotton and thicker threads with more heft. Really, experimentation and texture are encouraged! (Or, shop when you get here as we have a nice selection of DMC and Weeks Dye Works threads.)
  • Small 3-D Items that are meaningful to you
