Abandon your embroidery expectations and embrace freestyle stitching during a hands-on Contemporary Embroidery workshop!

My contemporary approach to embroidery pulls this craft out of the past and into the present with modern designs and a relaxed attitude. I emphasize drawing, composition, and color choice over rigid structures and traditional stitches. My workshops celebrate intuitive decision making and a departure from the conventions of hand-embroidery.
