In Case You Missed It: STITCH DIY Embroidery Night

STITCH and the McMullen teamed up to host a Do-It-Yourself Embroidery Night on Tuesday, February 22. The McMullen provided the supplies and STITCH brought the expertise. Among Martin Parr’s photographs in the second floor gallery, participants gathered around tables strewn with embroidery hoops, fabric, needles, and thread of every imaginable color. Experience levels were all over the board, and many attendees were seen scrolling on Pinterest trying to find an attainable yet visually pleasing pattern for their beginner skills. By the end of the night, many were introduced to the art of embroidery and invited to future STITCH meetings, and everyone got to take home their beautiful embroidery projects.

Students gathered around tables in the second floor gallery and worked on their embroidery projects.
Participants followed instructions from the packet provided or went with their own designs.
STITCH members instructed and chatted with attendees throughout the gallery.

Keep an eye out for the next McMullen and STITCH collaboration, Crocheting on the Quad on May 3rd and 4th!
