FULL – Thread Painting – Cat Candow
February 3 @ 9:00 am - 4:00 pm$89.00 – $119.00
ONE-DAY WORKSHOP – February 3, 2024 | 9 am – 4 pm
Learn how to make an image completely out of hand-sewn stitches! No previous sewing or embroidery experience is necessary, but good hand-eye coordination is a must. You will learn how to stitch outlines, create different textures, and blend colours in order to make your embroidered image as stylized or realistic as you like.
After making a small sampler to try out a variety of stitches, you will design and embroider an image of your choice. You will leave with all of the tools, materials and instructions needed to finish your project at home and will be all set up for a new, very addictive hobby!

Raised in Germany under her grandmother’s sewing table, Cat took her first stitches around age 3, attempting to make pants for her Teddy. She learned to crochet and cross stitch around the same time as learning to read and write but with much more enthusiasm. She moved to Canada as an exchange student and stayed to complete her diploma in Fashion Design from the New Brunswick College of Craft & Design (NBCCD). After spending 3 years in England making theater costumes, Cat returned to Canada and has been sewing, teaching, and making art ever since.
