Trevelyon Needle Book Embroidery Workshop

May 18 @ 9:30 am - 4:30 pm


The Historical and Cultural Society of Clay County announces an intermediate workshop on surface embroidery led by nationally recognized embroidery artist and teacher Kathy Andrews on Saturday, May 18. The 6-hour workshop will be held at the Hjemkomst Center, Oak Room, in Moorhead starting at 9:30am. Participants are encouraged to bring a sack lunch.

The class will create Trevelyon’s needlebook. Sweet flowers and fresh, green leafy vines stitched on creamy ivory linen combine in this delightful needlebook. The design for this needlebook comes from the Trevelyon Miscellany of 1608, a book that’s over 400 years old, compiled at the end of the Renaissance. The design will use satin stitch, stem stitch, long and short shading, leaf stitch and trellis work. The finished design size is 4” x 4.5“

Registration of $80 includes the $55 supplies kit and $25 class fee. The kit contains beautiful linen twill with printed design, 7 full skeins of cotton floss, needles, a full color instruction booklet, lining fabric for the needle book, felt for the pages, and an individualized project bag.

The students will need to provide a basic stitching kit, magnification and lighting, an 8” hoop with a lap stand, roller frame or slate frame and stand.

Participation is limited to 20. Registration is at https://www.hcscconline.org/events.html

The affordable class fee for this workshop is made possible through grant support. This activity is made possible by the voters of Minnesota through grants from Lake Region Arts Council, thanks to a Minnesota State Legislative appropriation; The Arts Partnership with the Cities of Fargo, Moorhead, and West Fargo; the Fargo-Moorhead Area Foundation, and the Alex Stern Family Foundation.
