Learn five different stitches to embroider Minnesotan wildflowers, capturing the summer beauty with thread! We will be learning five new stitches that come in handy when creating different floral textures and flowers of all sizes. The stitches you learn in this class can be used in other embroidery projects.  

Materials include a 6" embroidery hoop, a size 5 needle, embroidery floss, and fabric. This class is appropriate for beginners. 

About the Instructor, Nora Rickey: I am a self taught visual artist and educator living in Minnesota. Raised in an artistic household and trained in NYC, I came into my visual arts practice when I moved back to the sweet Midwest.  Here, I began exploring and teaching myself different fiber arts skills and incorporating them into my work. Whether a hidden secret or on full display, I love to create pieces that transform the wearer into art.
