ABOUT THE WORKSHOP
Create original designs on fabric using creative punch needle embroidery techniques!
Punch needle embroidery is a safe, fast, and fun way to create original designs on any type of non-stretch fabric. Embroidered artwork can be used for wall hangings, clothing patches, tote bag pins, and more! Learn the basics on punch needle embroidery, including setting up your needle, proper sewing techniques, and best practices. The best part, you take home all your supplies with you!
ABOUT THE FACILITATOR: SKYLAR CHEUNG
Skylar Cheung is an embroidery enthusiast who found the practice of punch needle embroidery online last winter. She recognizes the lack of affordable workshops teaching this fun and easy practice, and hopes to share the lesson and techniques she has learned with the community. Skylar enjoys creating witty signs for home decor using the punch needle technique. Her works have been featured at her school: the University of Toronto. There, she is an undergraduate student with a double major in political science and criminology.

Payment is to be made online at the time of registration, which will be done via Eventbrite. Payments through Eventbrite can be made with any major credit card, or through PayPal.
