There has been a lot of positive feedback to this blog and to the idea of meditative stitching in general. As a shop owner selling handmade items and facilitating craft parties, I often hear from a lot of customers that they love making things but they just "don't have the time". I think that is what is so appealing about my morning stitching meditations....you only need 10 minutes! (Often you have so much fun that 10 minutes turns into 15...20...)
Doing my morning stitch work has helped me in so many ways- I am more relaxed, self satisfied, and ready to start my day! I want to show others how this can work for them too! On Wednesday August 5th from 7-9pm I am teaching through The Muse! My friend, Heather Stang, owner of The Frederick Meditation Center will guide us through a meditation practice to begin the class. I will then help people pick a mantra or favorite word or quote to transfer onto vintage linens. We will then learn a backstitch to create a beautiful embroidered piece.
Treat Yo Self and take time for stitching! Registration is at The Muse, 19 N Market St or by calling 301-663-3632!
