Happy-Go-Lucky Stitchalong: Find your Bliss, Stitch by Stitch, in a Grid-Style Embroidered Sampler

Taught by Amy Powers

4-week guided workshop • Starts September 3, 2014

What makes you smile?

Bring 25 doses of pure happiness along with you, wherever you'll be this August: Relaxing by a pool. Sitting in the bleachers. Daydreaming under a tree. Riding along on a road trip.

In Happy-Go-Lucky Stitchalong, you'll embroider a personalized "happy sampler" featuring all your favorite things, with Amy Powers as your coach and your muse. Beginners welcome!

Amy wholeheartedly believes that embroidery doesn't have to be perfect to be beautiful. In fact, she'll inspire you to embrace the clumsy, chunky, and messy parts of creativity (and life in general) as you stitch a delightful reminder of everything that brings you joy.

In this 2-week guided workshop, you will:

  • Identify your 25 happy things and decide how to represent each one in embroidery
  • Watch Amy create each square in her sampler in a series of 26 happy videos that are filled with tips, tricks, and inspiring ideas—about 3 minutes each
  • Find your bliss, stitch by stitch, in your own grid-style embroidered sampler
