Afterhours with Lisa and Nicky | Using Mixed Media in your Embroidery Projects | Saturday, July 15 at 5:30 pm

You will not want to miss this social learning event with Lisa Shaw of SewBubbles and Nicky Adamkiewicz aka The Sassy Subber. These two high octane exuberant instructors are going to share with you the ins and outs, dos and don'ts, wows, and what-was-I-thinkings related to
Mixed Media - Mylar, yarn, sublimation, confetti, even applique - these are just a few of the mixed media things that you can incorporate into your embroidery projects. Why would you want to do this? Why not! Ok that’s a silly answer, but machine embroidery can be so much more than slapping a “fish on a t-shirt” and calling it done. Let’s discuss and share some of the ways that you bring in mixed media into your projects! Elevate your embroidery - bring some pizazz into your stitching! BONUS - bring/wear/tote something you embroidered that shows the use of mixed media and get an entry into the “LIVE Afterhours with Lisa Giveaway!” We will have some fun giveaways from the Sassy Subber and various “Lisa Shaw friends in the industry” such as SCHMETZ Needles and Kai Scissors and ONE lucky person will win a Lifetime Subscription to Lisa’s Vimeo Channel.
