Stitch your Valentine’s Day plans together with this workshop’s new take on an old tradition, as small sewers ages 6–10 are invited and encouraged to embrace embroidery in a fun and modern way. Instructor Caroline will have the crew in stitches as she playfully teaches the fundamentals of cross stitching and coaches classmates to the creation of Valentine’s Day inspired compositions. Program participants will take their masterpieces to go, and will also enjoy bringing home Minni Cross-Stitch Kits for further practice (aka winter weekend entertainment) beyond studio walls.
Each handmade Minni Cross-Stitch Kit includes :
+ One circle cross-stitch board made of thick, 100% wool felt
+ Cotton yarn in two colors
+ One safe plastic needle
+ Directions on how to make a single cross-stitch
Caroline is a DC native who has also lived in both New York and Texas, where she studied Elementary Education and received her Montessori training before settling in Cambridge. A lifelong crafter, Caroline has been knitting, crocheting, drawing, and sewing since she was a young child, but loves to experiment with any visual arts medium. She enjoys incorporating visual arts into her classroom, from illustrating stories to mindful weaving practices. When she is not teaching elementary school, Caroline can be found designing her handmade wardrobe or creating toys for her friends. She encourages her students to take risks and use art as a form of expression.
