Pick up a needle and come appreciate flowers with gardener and embroidery artist, Jill Taylor! Embroidery is a beautiful way to slow down and notice colours and details around you. In this workshop, Jill will be teaching how to make basic and compound stitches for beginners, and how to use these stiches to create your own floral designs and floral scenes on a personalized card.
