Learn to embroider and sew a custom banner

Embroidered Banner

Combine the beauty of embroidery and the creativity of sewing to craft your personalized banner.

In this beginner friendly workshop you'll embroider one (or more!) adorable patterns onto fabric, and sew a custom banner to take home. Have fun learning step by step all necessary skills to create you're unique project. This is for anyone who wants to get a taste for these very popular crafts, or just have fun making something yourself. Not only will you get an introduction to sewing and embroidery, but the banners you'll learn to make can be used in so many creative ways to decorate your home, as decorations for a wedding or party, or personalized gifts. You'll leave the workshop with your banner and the skills to make more on your own.

How It Works

The first half of the workshop will be dedicated to embroidering your chosen pattern. When you are ready, you will then move to the sewing machine where you'll learn how to transform your beauties into the finished banner. If time allows, you may have time to make more than one.

A few examples of the banners and embroidery patterns you can make, plus many more!
