"...knitters just can't watch TV without doing something else. Knitters just can't wait in line, knitters just can't sit waiting at the doctor's office. Knitters need knitting to add a layer of interest in other, less constructive ways.”

    It's Amazing how a few simple stitches can add life to just about any textile! In this class I will not only teach the basics of embroidery, but how to transfer your own designs onto fabric, how to select different stabilizers for different fabrics, other embellishments and more. All supplies are included although students are encouraged to bring their own embroidery floss colors and transfers if desired.

    Jodi lee's passion for fashion, theater and the arts began at a very young age. She was highly involved in the theater program during her high school years (both on and off the stage) and found herself constantly designing and altering clothes. Her involvement in the arts and fashion world lead her to a small modeling career where she got the opportunity to live abroad in such cities as Athens, Hong Kong, Milano and more. After a few years of traveling, she settled in Los Angeles where the birth of SandBox Rebel (and her son, Aurthur) took place. SandBox Rebel sprung from the simple need for hip and inspired children's clothing. Being frustrated with what was on the market, Jodi lee rolled-up her sleeves, grabbed a pile of old band shirts and took to the sewing machine. Before she knew it people were buying her wears from her (self-made) diaper bag... then a store wanted an order, then another, then she opened her own store and, viola! Since then, SandBox Rebel has been featured two years in LA's Fashion Week, several magazines such as People and LA Kids, worked with several non-profits and started an internship program sharing the joy of fashion with countless others. She currently resides in John Day, Oregon where she is still up to her crafty ways designing, crafting, and teaching.

    This class is one of my favorites! It's a fantastically fun project for beginning and experienced embroiderers alike. I will be teaching you how to transfer your image onto fabric and a few basic embroidery stitches. Let me show you how simple and fun it is to turn that photo into a piece of art! What you would like to do with it afterwards is completely up to you; they look lovely framed or turned into an envelope pillow cover (I hear there's a class for that).

    Students are encouraged to bring their own machine if possible and a basic sewing kit. You will be contacted after signing up to discuss supplies needed and so I can get your chosen image prepped and ready previous to the class time.

    Let's get our stitch on! In this workshop we will be combining our skills to bring your own special memory to life. In the first segment of the workshop I will be teaching various embroidery stitches and complementing forms of embellishment before we move onto transferring your own chosen image onto fabric and making the magic happen. Upon completion of your beautifully hand-stitched work of art you have the option of framing it or turning it into a lovely throw pillow (think gift time people!!). Come spend the day with me and let's see what beautiful memories we can embellish on.

    The classic envelope pillow. What a great way to spice up any boring old pillow! This class is fantastic for beginners because you learn so many skills that will be useful in all future projects. You will learn a simple intro to pattern making using seam allowance, hems, buttons, fabric covered button making and a quick and easy way to add piping so that its perfect every time! This class is available independently, although it pairs nicely with its counterpart "Applique It."

    Students are encouraged to bring their own machine, if possible, and a basic sewing kit. You will be contacted after signing up about fabrics/supplies needed.

    Ages 13 +

    Skill Level Beginner

    Jodi lee's passion for fashion, theater and the arts began at a very young age. She was highly involved in the theater program during her high school years (both on and off the stage) and found herself constantly designing and altering clothes. Her involvement in the arts and fashion world lead her to a small modeling career where she got the opportunity to live abroad in such cities as Athens, Hong Kong, Milano and more. After a few years of traveling, she settled in Los Angeles where the birth of SandBox Rebel (and her son, Aurthur) took place. SandBox Rebel sprung from the simple need for hip and inspired children's clothing. Being frustrated with what was on the market, Jodi lee rolled-up her sleeves, grabbed a pile of old band shirts and took to the sewing machine. Before she knew it people were buying her wears from her (self-made) diaper bag... then a store wanted an order, then another, then she opened her own store and, viola! Since then, SandBox Rebel has been featured two years in LA's Fashion Week, several magazines such as People and LA Kids, worked with several non-profits and started an internship program sharing the joy of fashion with countless others. She currently resides in John Day, Oregon where she is still up to her crafty ways designing, crafting, and teaching.
