In this workshop we are exploring the beautiful and delicate art of embroidery featuring woodland botanicals with artist Katie Martin of Harvest Goods Co. Whether you’re brand new to embroidery or a long-time stitcher, this workshop will elevate your embroidery skills and knowledge through Katie’s comprehensive direction. We’ll learn how to split threads, tie off, correct mistakes (and realize how easy they are to fix!) and how to finish your pieces. In this detailed tutorial, she also covers all of the basic stitches and dives into some more seemingly advanced but totally doable techniques including stem stitching, french knots, whipped back stitching, and even thread painting! By the end, you’ll have a beautifully elegant botanical embroidery full of dimension, movement, and texture.

If embroidery is something you’ve always wanted to try but has seemed intimidating to you in the past, this is the workshop for you. Katie talks about some of the stitches that first seemed a bit daunting to her when she started — it took her a few months to work up the courage to try a french knot! Once she realized how profoundly simple each stitch is, her skills and confidence grew and grew, just like yours will. With practice and imagination, you can truly make anything you set out to. Katie set us up for all of the future making by sharing how you can expand on your patterns, the flexibility of the stitches you can incorporate, and how you can truly curate your own designs to match your interests and comfort levels.

This workshop is the perfect craft to slow down, disconnect, and focus on the techniques to clear your mind. Enjoy every little different element that goes into this intricate and elegant botanical design Katie has created just for us. Cozy up with your hoop and embroidery threads, a blanket, and cup of something warm — let’s get stitching!
