S113T ~ String Art Theory: How to Get Kids Stitching

String Art Theory: How to Get Kids Stitching (S113T)

Technique (Embroidery) | Skill Level: For All Skill Levels
Presented by: Doug Kreinik
Sponsored by: Kreinik Mfg. Co. Inc.

This is how you get the younger generation stitching: through free-form, no-rules embroidery. Sound outrageous or overwhelming? It isn't: it's string art and we will show you how to do it. Use the class project for events that will expand your customer base (like birthday parties that will get kids, parents, their friends and parents all stitching in your store) and get the next generation comfortable with needle and thread (they call it “string"). Plus, your eyes will light up at this fun new way to use your fiber stock (yes really, we'll be glowing!).
