Intro Embroidery Workshop - June 18
Join us for an intro to embroidery workshop with Nithya of mydecorify at Indigo & Violet Studio!
This DIY Kit and workshop will include everything you need to embroider your own canvas tote bag to use for groceries, travel, and the perfect beach bag. We will be showing a few simple stitches along with providing a few design ideas for you to use as inspiration.
We will start with some practice stitches on fabric scraps and then you will be able to pencil sketch your design on the tote bag and begin creating. The best part of this workshop is that you can take home the DIY kit and all the supplies inside to embroider again!
No sewing or embroidery experience is required. Share this link with your creative friends and make an afternoon out of it!

Meet Nithya and mydecorify:
Hi! I'm Nithya, a digital artist, and business owner, and I am so excited to be bringing my passion for art to all of you through these workshops! I have been painting since a very young age and I also enjoyed DIY crafts like jewelry-making and mod-podge collages. I continued painting through high school and college and even took a few art classes to keep practicing and learn new mediums. I then began creating digital art during the pandemic and naturally gravitated towards South Asian fashion and incorporated Mandalas, traditional South Asian dresses, and henna designs into my art pieces.
Through that journey, I discovered my passion for wanting to bring crafts and DIY projects to people in a sustainable way. I saw a gap in the creative world between scrolling on Pinterest and going to craft stores to actually buy the supplies and oftentimes a lot of those surplus supplies would get wasted after one project. I wanted to create a solution for this by bringing curated DIY kits with just the right amount of supplies and nothing more. After creating some initial DIY kits for my site, I added my digital art to my shop as prints, stickers, and notebooks and it's been amazing being able to showcase my culture alongside the other products. I can't wait to expand and add more DIY kits and continue to grow and make more art.
