Made By You
Welcome to our Cross Stitch Workshop with Zoe Frost of Junebug & Darlin. This Cross Stitch Workshop is an excellent creative practice for novice and expert makers alike. Cross-stitching is achieved through using a grid. By working in a pre-gridded fabric, there’s no guessing as to where to put your stitches or what type of stitch will work best. Cross-stitching is a great methodical craft.
Zoe Frost of Junebug & Darlin will walk you through each of the curated supplies in your kit. You’ll learn how to read a counted cross stitch pattern, and from there, stitch your way through her speciality design, created just for our community of makers. You’ll also explore technique and skills in how to back your embroidery hoop for a professional finish.
Our workshop teaches three types of stitches: full stitches, backstitching and French knots. With Zoe’s help, you’ll gain the confidence and skills to take this 11-color design to the next level with additional techniques to make your piece flourish.
We’ve thoughtfully curated the ingredients in this kit. Be sure to follow Zoe’s detailed video directions in your digital Workshop Gallery. We can’t wait for you to learn from our featured maker and explore this joyful art form.
We cannot wait to see your Cross Stitch creations. Be sure to share your creative journey and results with us by tagging @thecraftersbox + @junebuganddarlin in your social posts, and use #thecraftersbox so our community can see your work. Happy making.
