This workshop will teach you all the basics you need to know to start enjoying the art of modern embroidery. The introduction will include reviewing supplies, tips, techniques, and will guide you through learning and practically stitching eleven different stitches.
Each attendee will then take the stitches they learned and start on their choice of two different projects (Bad Bunny or Sacred Hearts). You'll walk away with two hoops (stitch sampler and final project), the supplies needed and pattern guide to complete your project and the knowledge to continue your journey with Embroidery. All levels are welcome! And we'll raffle some embroidery related prizes!

About our host: Lupe Lennox-Salinas (@chingonahoops on Instagram) is a Latina who loves to embroider. Latinx culture, art, and history is what inspires her and what she really loves exploring with embroidery. This is not your abuela’s embroidery, it is modern embroidery. She mostly focuses on portraits of Latinos that include anything from fictional characters in a movie, book, etc. to non-fictional historical figures. It is her small way to make them more visible and our voices heard.
