The Vera Project

This 3-week, project-based embroidery workshop & kit is an avenue for creation and community, through lenses of DIY merch and self care.

This three class series is an avenue for creation and community, through lenses of DIY application and self care. With your included embroidery kit, you’ll access group discussions, instructor presentations and own time activities in and outside of class with the opportunity to share progress. Starts with the fundamentals of embroidery which will set the foundation for any needlework project.
