About the Event
Join us inside Far Out to embroider radical Far Out tees with Atelier Reno! If you’ve got some sewing skills (threading a needle, basic stitching, etc.), you can dive right in, picking up your tee and start stitching away.
If you’re a newbie, we’ll have Atelier in Reno instructor Kelly, Thrive and Thicken’s Sarah Lillegard and Great Basin Fiber Shed’s Sara Garey-Sage on hand to help you hone your embroidery skills. We’ll be embroidering right on to your brand-spanking-new, lightweight, Good Lovin’ tee from Coalition Snow.
Date: Thursday, July 20th
Time: 6 - 8 pm
Cost: $15 if you bring your own supplies and $25 if you need embroidery supplies; the tee is included in the price for both options. You must register in advance and can choose your size and supplies here.
