Learn to Embroider, Flex Your Creativity, and Get Lost in Something Fun!

Hand embroidery is a skill that’s been around for centuries and is making a resurgence in the best way possible – this ain’t your great-grandma’s embroidery!

In this virtual craft session, you’ll learn about the ages old art of hand embroidery and how to put a modern spin on it! I’ll take you through choosing your design, hooping your fabric, threading your needle, and 5 basic stitches that you’ll need to create some seriously cool stitched masterpieces.

My session is great for getting together online with colleagues and friends alike. It’s a relaxing and fun way to unplug from work or social media and to get your hands and brain focused on learning a new skill that is great for de-stressing!

For this session, you are able to provide your own materials to the attendees or to purchase kits from me. Kits will be mailed individually to the Names and Addresses provided at the time of booking/purchase.

My Background

As an entrepreneur, I have been teaching craft classes (usually at craft breweries) for 5 years. Always the “crafty one” of my friend groups, I have an equal love for fiber arts, power tools, and glitter.

I really love sinking my saw-teeth into that ‘boom’ moment—the mic drop moment. Nothing tops the feeling of seeing a project from start to finish. I whole-heartedly believe this feeling is up for grabs for EVERYONE.

Working with your hands and seeing a project come to life is not just reserved for the serious artists of the world. Everyone is creative. Period.

That’s why I launched Crowned Sparrow Craft Co. in January 2015: To make it easy to tap into your creativity. To lower the bar for a sense of accomplishment. To create space that helps people unwind, get off their screens, and tap into their inner creative.
