Embroidery is a type of needlework, and it isn't difficult to learn. In fact, most people say it's easier than crocheting or knitting. The key to learning this special craft is to focus on learning one stitch at a time.
The investment to get started is minimal. All you need is a pattern, some thread, a hoop, and material. You don't even need a machine. And if you are looking to learn a craft that'll keep your fingers busy while you're waiting, embroidery is ideal because you can take it anywhere! What could be simpler?
Embroidery can be learned from a book, magazine or website, but the best way is to have someone show you in person.

No formalities, just friends getting together to talk, share and learn. $5 per person.
