Come join the fun on the second Sunday of every month for our Secret Stitch Society, led by the talented Heather of Wildflowers Handwork! From February to April, we'll be weaving together new skills and forming lasting friendships.
At our first meeting of the Secret Stitch Society children can choose to make either a heart ornament or a pocket pillow using the most fundamental of all stitches, the running stitch! While we will be making a project, our focus will be on learning and practicing the stitches. We will first practice on fabric that will help us make even stitches, and then will move to our project! We will do this all while enjoying getting to know each other while we stitch. Children who attend all the workshops will have both the monthly project and a sampler bookmark from learning each stitch.
Shhhhhhhh! We’re forming a secret stitching society where we will be learning a variety of embroidery stitches, which is a life-long gift for children. Knowing stitches can open the window to so many things – creating a craft, mending any fabric, embellishing fabric items. In this series of workshops, the children will learn a new embroidery stitch at every session and continue practicing the ones they learned previously through creating a seasonal decoration. Children can attend all the workshops and build a repertoire of stitches or children can attend just one and learn the stitch being worked on in that session. It’s a secret society because at this age children are really in the process of developing their individuality/creating themselves as separate from their parents. Heather, has training in child development, and will create just the right held space for them to create both their projects, but also their emerging selves! Stitching and chatting are a perfect combination!
👶 Recommended ages 9+ (8 year olds are welcome to join as well!)

Meet Your Teacher:
Heather has always loved playing with wool in all its forms but came to Waldorf handwork when she started homeschooling her daughter in the Waldorf tradition. She fell so in love with the Waldorf approach to handwork that she trained as a teacher and now seeks to bring the beauty of handwork to all children. Heather can be found playing outside with her family in her free time in this gorgeous state of ours.
