Home Ec. Workshop presents Thread Collective, an embroidery subscription featuring Iowa City artists that debuted in September 2020. In March we began collaborating with local artists to create a 12 month embroidery experience that offers the subscriber a new and unique printed sampler each month. Each month you will receive beautiful threads and/or embellishments chosen by the artist to accompany their printed sampler. Subscriptions can still be purchased for 4 months!! You can start the 4 month subscription anytime and it will begin the next month.
The first sampler that you receive from Thread Collective 2020-2021 will also include the following embroidery swag... a printed drawstring bag, hoop, needles, 5 colors of thread and a printed sampler (of course!).
The months following you will receive a new printed sampler by a different artist plus a fabulous new material that was chosen by the artist to accompany their sampler.
We also host a zoom meet-up where you learn a stitch or two, see what other members are working on and sometimes the artist who designed the sampler will come and hang out--so much fun!
The artists that have contributed to the Thread Collective are Iowa City artists:
Sayuri Sasaki Hemann • Kelly Moore • Emily Martin • Amber Morris • Jenny Gringer • Emily Jalinsky • Michelle Edwards • Karen Carcia • Elizabeth Munger • Heidi Casto • Nathasha Otteson • Greta Songe • Codi Josephson
This is a fun subscription for beginning embroiders and experts! The artwork is AMAZING and the samplers can be stitched minimally or stitched to your heart's desire and completely filled--either way it will look SO GOOD. The final embroidery can be stretched over a frame to add to your art collection, made into a pillow, stitched onto the back of a jean jacket and one is even begging to be turned into an oversized brooch!
*Individual samplers will be available for purchase 4 months after they have been released through the subscription.
