Creepy Crawlies You’ll Actually Love!

Put away the fly swatter and grab your floss and needles! These are the kinds of bugs you’ll love to have around. Mixed media maven Christen Brown brings the outdoors in with her latest class, featuring six designs each of spiderwebs, spiders, and more of your favorite creepy crawling garden dwellers. Thanks to the digital format of this course, you’ll get up close detailed video instruction as Christen works her signature embellished style into webs of embroidered beauty.  This course is a great way to jump-start your fall decor or make a one-of-a-kind gift for the gardener in your life. 

With the magic of technology, you can pause, stop, and rewind any portion of Christen’s tutorials as she walks you through 24 different embroidery motifs that are worked with threads and embellishments.

The handout also provides the basics to re-create four of the Stash Projects shown in the class. Of course, you’ll always learn to add a little extra flair with Christen!
