Embroider yourself!

On a lazy Saturday afternoon in October we organised a ‘relaxation workshop’ entitled ‘Embroider yourself!’, which was led by Anna Raczkowska. The idea was to overcome autumn feelings of lack of motivation and melancholy by taking a needle and colourful yarns in your hand and remaking all these feelings into a piece of embroidery. Warm tea and chocolate cookies were served to give our participants the energy to learn the basics of embroidery – stitching, pattern filling and work with the embroidery hoop. There was also an opportunity to learn appliqué techniques with various elements such as beads, sequins, etc. Each participant designed his/her mini embroidery project and transferred it onto the chosen fabric. Meanwhile, we shared  thoughts, dreams and stories, inspiring one another to be happier and more active this autumn. Lovely afternoon!
