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.
