Embroider sustainably

Nest Embirdery is one of the few Canadian suppliers of UK-made beechwood Elbesee hoops. These embroidery hoops are FSC-certified, meaning that the lumber used for these hoops meets the gold standard of sustainability, environmentalism, and conservation. The Forest Stewardship Council plays a huge part in the conservation of wildlife and natural forests. The FSC also supports local economies, which means more jobs for those that live in and around these forests. Besides all that, they are my favourite hoop to use. They are a great quality for a reasonable price and hold fabric nice and snug while you stitch.

These are my last workshops before the fall as I gear up for a busy market season! I had to squeeze in a couple of last Blundstone workshops because they were just SO much fun last time I taught a class. Wanna sign up? The link is in my bio! We will practice basic stitches and go through a variety of embroidery tips and tricks along the way. Students will be given a variety of materials to make the projects their own, a large variety of embroidery floss and patterns will be available, and at the end of the class, you will be able to take home any supplies that you were working with to complete your project. Tea and Coffee will also be provided. This class will be held at 11210-143 street, Edmonton AB. This class is beginner friendly, but all levels are welcome! The class size is limited to 12 people. Since the art of embroidery is best enjoyed at a relaxed pace, work may be required outside of class to complete your piece of art.

Is this a Christmas Ornament in March? Yes. Is this a cop-out for #endangeredspecieschallenge this month? Yes. But March sucked, so this is the best I can do while still staying true to my promise to @huftgoldthreads 😂 The Black-Footed Ferret is one of the most endangered animals in North America - in fact, they were thought at one time to be extinct! Many reintroduction efforts are in motion to try and bring this amazing species back into the wild. In fact, @thewilderinstitute and @thecalgaryzoo are involved in reintroduction efforts for both the black-footed ferret and its main food source, the black-tailed prairie dog. Ferret populations began to drop as the black-tailed prairie dog started to disappear from the wild, so it's essential to reintroduce both species in tandem. It's very delicate work! The Endangered Species Challenge is hosted by @evolutionary_thread and @huftgoldthreads . I'll do better in April, I promise!!
