  This workshop is presented live on Zoom in two sessions to a very limited number of students. The workshop will be recorded and available for 30 days after the workshop ends.
   Boro Stitching is a type of hand stitching that originated in Japan as a way to mend or patch together clothing or other cloth items. The Slow Stitching movement has really taken hold, and it is one of the most enjoyable and relaxing creative practices I have explored.
   We will cover the basics of layout and materials to be used, and spend our time happily stitching away. This type of stitching lends itself perfectly to bags, clothing, home decor, and many other types of items. 
   In the first session you will learn to create a beautiful sampler with lots of stitching ideas. In the second session, we will cover the piecing techniques and design options that work so well with this type of stitching.
   No experience is required, and all skill levels are welcome.
 You will learn: 
- the best tools and supplies to use
- how to mark your fabric the easy way
- how to do hand embroidery without a hoop
- basic stitches to create beautiful patterns and textures
- options for finishing and display
