Join us for this fun Stitch-from-your-Stash project!

The Mexican Tile was inspired by the colors in Talavera Tile found in Mexico, and can be worked in one of the suggested colorways, or with whatever you have at home. Teacher Margaret Bendig will help students put together their own custom colorways at the beginning of class, before getting started on the flat satin, sprat’s head and woven stitches. This class has a special, accelerated registration schedule so we can start stitching it together on May 6th.
