Since her first scarf, Rhiannon has gone on to fabricate for Lion Brand Yarn, Nathan Vincent, Olek, Jeila Gueramian, Londonkaye, and Levi’s.

In this three-hour combination class, you'll learn the basics of hand lettering and layout then design the lettering for your custom embroidered hoop. You can choose any word up to three letters for your custom tote design.
In the second half of class, we'll transfer our designs onto fabric and learn a few important embroidery stitches (the back and satin stitches) and get to work filling in our lettering.
We'll work on natural-colored tote bags with your choice of embroidery floss colors.
