The Language of Stitches

Learn new stitches and their histories

Kids will learn embroidery stitches and expand their stitch language while learning about the cultural history of the stitches. They’ll start with more basic stitches and then challenge themselves with more challenging stitches. They’ll also create a stitch sampler that shows what they learned.
