In this online workshop students will create a sampler that combines text and imagery.

The workshop will cover techniques for transferring a design, basic stitches, and tips for designing layout. In addition, we will discuss the history and significance of the sampler including recent iterations and interpretations. No prior sewing or embroidery experience is necessary. Embroidery stitching can be used on fabric or paper, and is an ideal skill for book artists.
