Great location with good lighting, super friendly and patient teacher. Plenty of material available, also to take home at the end of the night to complete your piece! Loved it and would highly recommend.

Our embroidery workshop was a great way to spend an evening- fun & interesting guided by ever helpful Amy. We learned new ways with stitches & were able to work on a project that looked good from the start- due to Amy’s thoughtful cutting of threads & background preparation. 3 hours went way to quickly!
