    EMBROIDERY WORKSHOP, Saturday 1:30 to 3:30 pm (11/3, 10). $80
    There are so many uses for embroidery; you’ll wonder how you survived without it! It’s a perfect way to customize items for gifts, for yourself, or for sale. It’s also a great compliment to knitting or crocheting. Create a sampler of a dozen basic stitches, learn how to transfer designs, and begin your first embroidered project: the classic tea towel.
