|This class is a series of 12 program that meets once each month all year long. You will learn simple, but beautiful, embroidery techniques as we explore some of the most iconic trees of southeast Missouri such as the bald cypress and white oak; as well as lesser known trees like the cucumber magnolia, Ozark chestnut, and trees native to our specific part of the state. Each block will feature a leaf with either its fruit or flower. At each class you will discover a new tree’s secret life history, habitat preferences, importance to wildlife and the myriad uses by people through the ages. By signing up, you are committing to attend all 12 monthly sessions, with the opportunity to complete all 16 blocks for an entire quilt. Classes will be held on either the third or fourth Monday of each month at 6:00 pm at the Gaylord Laboratory Library. You will need to supply your own embroidery hoop and needle. We will have patterns, thread, light boards, and Frixion pens available for tracing the patterns.
You must cancel your registration before Monday, December 11, 2023.
All registrants for this event must be a minimum age of 13 years old by 12/11/2023.
