Service Description

**Early Registration for newsletter subscribers begins 7/27 **General access registration begins 7/29 With a few simple stitches you can transform a favorite photographed portrait into an embroidered work of art! The focus of this workshop will be embroidering a face. Participants will learn about different stitches to create lines and texture, how to transfer the photo onto fabric, and making decisions about thread types and colors. It is appropriate for both beginners and experienced embroiderers. Class kit is $20 and includes a 6” hoop, 3 pieces of cotton fabric, a marking pen, a pencil, tracing paper, embroidery floss, needles, and instructions to complete the project at home. Participants should bring a clear photograph of one person’s face (experienced embroiderers may try a photo with two to three faces) printed out. The face should be about 5-7”.

Beverly Army Williams has been smitten with textiles and fiber arts since she was seven. An avid crocheter, knitter, weaver, quilter, and garment maker, she has been embroidering for 18 years. Her early projects used transfers from Sublime Stitching–roller derby girl aprons, French knot poodles onesies, and whimsical chihuahua tea towels. After a class with Cal Patch, Beverly broke free from patterns to embark on numerous long-term embroidery art projects. She has studied with Sarah Pedlow of Thread Written, Claire Wellesley-Smith, Adriana Torres and Ekta Kaul. Beverly has shared her love of embroidery teaching at her local Women on the Way club, and in her Slow Fashion course at Westfield State University. When not stitching, Beverly teaches writing, makes poems, plays with watercolors, and hikes with her husband and two dogs. You can follow her adventures on Instagram at @Beverly_Army13
