Embroidery Workshop

Sunday, July 31 | 1:00 – 4:00 PM 

Workshop ticket: $45 | Member ticket: $40

Taught by Stena Lieb, a Visual Arts Educator and participant in The Embroidery Project, this workshop will offer step-by-step guidance using a variety of embroidery stitches. See where your stitches take you as a beginner or advance your embroidery skills on a cotton dish towel.  You can also bring a favorite clothing item to mend or enhance with stitchery.

About the Instructor:

Stena Lieb is a K-12 Visual Arts Educator in rural Lanesboro. She started embroidery as a young girl and practiced on dish towels. She moved on to embellishments and even created a hand stitched crazy quilt. Stena teaches a variety of fiber arts along with ceramics, printmaking, drawing, painting, and other mediums at Lanesboro Public Schools. She has five children who keep her in mending from time to time. She lives on a three-generation farm that raises a few beef cattle and poultry. Stena is also certified to wild harvest ten varieties of edible mushrooms. She and her family are in the process of renovating their 110-year-old barn to grow mushrooms year round, adding to the mushrooms they are also cultivating outdoors.

This activity is made possible by the voters of Minnesota through a grant from the Minnesota State Arts Board, thanks to a legislative appropriation from the arts and cultural heritage fund.
