This October, we will steep ourselves in Christi Johnson's gorgeous new book titled "Mystical Stitches: Embroidery for Personal Empowerment and Magical Embellishment to create individual talismans and connect with other symbol-loving, creative folks.

Week 1: Embroidery as spiritual practice. Consider the idea of embroidery as spiritual practice. Set up your hoop, choose a color palette, and get comfortable with a set of 7 basic stitches.

Week 2: Treasury of symbols. Explore Johnson's "treasury of symbols" and reflect on the symbols that resonate with you. Draw on them to sketch out a vision for your talisman.

Week 3: Making space. Spend time creating your talisman. 

Week 4: Crafting a Ritual. Design a simple ritual to infuse your talisman with energy and intention for the coming days. Share you finished talisman with the group.

Registration includes:

  • Course fee
  • A copy of Mystical Stitches by Christi Johnson
  • Embroidery hoop
  • Embroidery needle
  • Embroidery floss
  • A piece of hand-dyed wool fabric
  • Project bag

*Note: This course is currently planned to be in-person with masks required at Dappled Fern Fibers and may be switched to Zoom if CDC, State of Minnesota, and Dappled Fern guidelines change. Don't worry, I'm well-versed in holding sacred virtual space and am confident that the group will be powerful and meaningful no matter the venue!
