Lisa's Stumpwork Shamrock
(3D embroidery!!)

Saturday March 3rd at Fish Creek Library 10:00am


If you have admired 3D embroidery but feel intimidated then this workshop is a great place to start!!


The shamrock pin will interdict you to the basics of stump work and Lisa will ease your concerns.  The workshop runs in the morning at Fish Creek Public Library and we will continue in the afternoon with stitching time for you to continue to work or bring your own project.  


Lisa will be doing a sign up at the February meeting!
