Hand embroidery is a great way to liven up clothing and items for your home, or make gifts for friends and family. It's also the medium for some of my favorite contemporary art.

Whether your aim is to find a new hobby or hang your work in the Whitney, the starting point is the same: get comfortable with a handful of basic stitches, learn about tools and materials, and discover how to use commercial patterns or make your own designs.

We will stitch a paisley design (an all-time favorite motif of mine) as a sampler to get you stitching up a storm.

Six students, one 3.5 hour class, $40.
This class meets at Stitch Lab.
