Canvas Empowerment with Jo Christensen

This two day embellishment class is one of a kind! Bring an unstitched canvas of your choice and Jo will guide you through how to select stitches and threads. The class begins with art and color theory. Then Jo will tell you what kind of stitch and thread she would like you to select for an area. You’ll learn how to use stitch books and select stitches. The second day will be spent on technique.
