This brand-new workshop is all about the vintage craft of Chicken Scratch, or Snowflake, embroidery. Handstitched on gingham, this endlessly customizable method creates a sort of lacy optical illusion on your base cloth. It’s magic! We will learn the basics of Chicken Scratch stitching and weaving as we make a 20” square star motif panel. It can be finished into a pillow or used as a quilt square when completed.
