I miss living down the street from Lill Street. I took some really great classes there. But, it was very hard for me to commit to 5 and 10 week classes, since my schedule is all over the place. That's where Dabble comes in. ONE DAY CLASSES! And affordable ones, at that!
Recently I joined some friends at One Strange Bird for a Dabble Embroidery Class (awesome side note: night classes are BYOB). I have tried teaching myself embroidery before through YouTube videos and online tutorials. The result? Knots and knots of embroidery thread. And more knots.
We learned how to do a few of the most popular stitches. And you know what? No knots! I had a great time and came away from the class feeling like I could definitely make something at home on my own.

I only took one picture the entire night since I was busy with a needle and embroidery floss!
I'd like to use my new skillz (yes, with a Z) to make something similar to this:

Now I just have to decide what to embroider.
Maybe I will go all out with my first try and do this?!
