Claribel is our friend from Sumpango, a town known for beautiful traditional neckline embroidery full of flowers. This 2-hour class includes all the materials to embroider your own canvas tote bag and a PDF guide with instruction on each of the traditional stitches for neckline embroidery, as seen in the images. The PDF guide access will be sent automatically to the provided email at check-out upon purchase of this product.
The canvas tote made by Creamos is already stenciled by Claribel for easy embroidery, and it looks great with the naturally-dyed cotton threads that we like to use. You'll be able to choose your own color preferences. You'll be able to choose and take home the threads you'd like to continue working with for your embroidery.
All of our workshops include a small snack in our garden.
